Registration now open for Climb the Tower

Join fellow faculty and staff members of the Illinois Tech community on Wednesday, April 4 from 2–4 p.m. in a stair climb from the lobby to the 19th floor of IIT Tower. Come for the climb and stay for the party.

Register here. Registration closes Wednesday, March 28, and you must register in advance and complete the Waiver of Liability form linked in the registration form. Individuals who do not sign the waiver will not be allowed to climb.

Registration is by individual (no teams), and the first 60 participants to register will receive a gift bag upon completion of their climb. Training assistance and support is available from the Illinois Tech Athletics Department. To get started, contact Courtney Priest at, or 312.567.7110.

Can’t commit to climbing 19 flights of stairs, but still want to participate? Register to volunteer and cheer on our climbers or help out in some other way during the event. Prizes will be awarded to individual participants and volunteers in a variety of areas, and the department with the most participants will win a prize.

Feel free to use the hashtag #CTT2018 to share your excitement about the event, your training experiences, and your event pictures with Illinois Tech’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.
