Climb to the Top is back with an interactive experience that brings together climbers across the country with one mission—a world free of MS.

ELEVATOR?

WHAT ELEVATOR?

Climb to the Top: Coast to Coast is a vertical 5K* that challenges you to climb 75 flights to your own personal summit in celebration of the Society’s 75 years of progress toward a cure for MS. Take on the stairs in your apartment, a steep hiking trail or the stair climber at your gym—this is your personal summit so think big and steep!

Through Trifecta Training Challenges leading up to event day, you’ll climb the equivalent of each of the iconic buildings in the Climb to the Top series and earn exclusive badges along the way.

We’ll be there to motivate and support you every step of the way with in-app challenges, photobooth stickers and a new fundraising website to make it even easier to make an impact and earn some pretty cool swag. Once you’ve reached your goal, we’ll send you a fully immersive experience with views from the top of the summits fellow participants have tackled.

Climb, connect and challenge yourself like never before. We’ll see you at the top!

*With the Trifecta Training Challenge and event day climb it really is!
