The inaugural CFF Stair Climb hosted by the Greater New York Chapter was held at Citi Field on Sunday, November 16th. Over 200 climbers braved the cold and ascended the 1,035 steps throughout the stairwells and upper deck of the stadium. Prior to participating in this test of endurance, guests enjoyed breakfast and music by Partners In Sound DJ, Mike Gregorio. Right before the first steps were taken, Miss Metropolitan NY 2014, Ms. Julia Rae Schlucter, shared some inspirational words with the crowd, followed by a Zumba warm up which was led by Credit Suisse Fitness Center instructor, Reinaldo Torres. Participants were also able to browse vendor booths including Walgreens and the Crazy Cakes Truck before and after the event. The inaugural CFF Stair Climb is projected to raise $40,000!
