Stratosphere’s Operation Tower Climb
Registration is now open online at www.stratosphereclimbs.com for the first annual Operation Tower Climb event at the Stratosphere, where level-by-level, step-by-step, hundreds of participants will transform the Stratosphere Tower on Saturday, October 26, 2013, into a climb for the community. Cost for participation is $100 with net proceeds benefiting two local charities: American Red Cross – Southern Nevada Chapter Fire Hurts division and Operation Fire H.E.A.T. – a Holiday Emergency Assistance Team. Operation Tower Climb is Stratosphere’s competitive stair climb for service men and women. Firefighters, police officers, military personnel and their families are encouraged to participate in this unique event. Awards will be presented based on division and weight classes. Participants and service individuals in full gear will climb 108 floors (1,455 stairs) to the indoor Observation deck of the Stratosphere Tower. A unique fixture in the Vegas skyline, Stratosphere’s tower at 1,149 ft is the tallest freestanding observation tower west of the Mississippi, featuring a 360° view finish line; making this a one-of-a-kind challenge for an adventuresome athlete or climbing enthusiast. All climbers must be 21 and older to participate. Space is limited, so early registration is advised.
