2014 Tackle the Tower
Tackle the Tower
The newly formed Health and Wellness Committee at Elk & Elk invites you to join us and register for the 12th annual Tackle the Tower Stair Climb Race and Walk to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland® on Saturday, February 8, 2014. Participants will climb 37 flights of stairs at the Tower at Erieview, located in the Center Court of the Galleria & Tower at Erieview, 1301 E. 9th Street in Downtown Cleveland. Lace up your sneakers, grab a friend and sign up today! Register online.
The race starts at 9:00 a.m. in Stairwell B. Runners will be lined up in the order that their entry was received and will start every 10 seconds. If you’re not a runner, you can still get plenty of exercise while helping a good cause by joining the Fun Walk at 8:45 a.m. in Stairwell A.
Attorneys from Elk & Elk were among the many sponsors in attendance at the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland on November 15, 2013, celebrating the grand opening of the expansion and renovation project.
A new wing was built to add additional space on four floors, including 18 new guest rooms, a larger kitchen facility, an extended recreation room for families to gather and an expanded conference center available for community meetings. In the House, the common areas and all 37 original guest rooms have been upgraded. Outdoors, a new koi pond and gardens will be ready for visitors in the spring.
At Elk & Elk, we know firsthand how hard medical problems can be on families. That’s why we’re proud to be a Top Donor of the RMH Capital Campaign and announce our sponsorship of the RMH Concierge Desk. The concierge team offers support and community resources to visiting families. Amenities include guides to area restaurants, transportation, entertainment and other services throughout Greater Cleveland.
You can help
Despite the influx of corporate sponsorship, RMH still needs your help to reach their goal. Just $20 supports a family for one night – one night that they can be near the hospital to support their child.
Join the 20 ♥ 20 drive today. Download this heart, make 20 copies, distribute to 20 people who will each donate $20 and then make the commitment to ask 20 others to do the same.
