Climb for Healthy Lungs & Clean Air
at Hustle Chicago® Stair Climb
An Important Announcement About the 2022 Event
We believe in a future free of lung disease, where everyone breathes easier. Climbers like you share Respiratory Health Association’s vision of healthy lungs and clean air for all – and we are grateful for your ongoing support.
We want to share with you some important news about Hustle Chicago® stair climb scheduled for February 27, 2022.
As you may know, Illinois and several other states are experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases (likely caused by the Delta and Omicron variants). Though we have seen great progress in vaccinations, Illinois and five other states are currently responsible for half of the new infections in the U.S. In Illinois, infections are up 58% in just one week.
The current surge has very serious implications for Respiratory Health Association’s Hustle Chicago event. Although it’s still several weeks away, we do not believe there is enough time for case rates to decrease to safely host the indoor event.
Therefore, we have made the decision to move the 2022 event back to Soldier Field and delay our return to 875 N. Michigan Avenue until 2023. While we are disappointed we cannot hold our traditional climb, we are committed to providing the safest possible event and are excited to return to this iconic outdoor setting.
The 2022 Hustle Chicago stair climb will be at Soldier Field on Sunday, May 15, 2022.
Current registered participants should have received an email with a form to complete about what they would like to do with their registration moving forward. If you did not receive this email, please contact [email protected].
If you have not yet registered and are interested in learning more about the Soldier Field climb, stay tuned! The 2022 climb will once again offer exclusive access to the stadium and a unique event experience, as participants will take steps toward a future free of lung disease in Soldier Field’s upper level. This year, the event will also feature an after party with music, food, drinks, and giveaways — all under the iconic Soldier Field outdoor colonnades!
We will still provide a Virtual Climb option for people who want to participate but not in-person.
Registration will temporarily be closed while we make updates to reflect our venue change to Soldier Field. You can still make online donations to climbers here through this link or the button below.
If you have questions, please send a note to [email protected].
We appreciate your support and hope to see you in May at Soldier Field!
