The GOA Michigan Stepping Up Climb is a unique, challenging fitness event in which participants climb stairs in a test of endurance. Whether climbing to improve timing or to simply reach new heights, this event is a great way to spend the morning with co-workers, friends and family while supporting bringing children together with their forever families.

Climb as many floors as desired or set a goal to reach either the 14th or 28th story at your own pace.
