Two big stairway events are coming up! See the "Walks & Events" page for more info and links.
On Saturday January 24th, the American Lung Association runs its annual "Fight for Air" race up 40 flights in the Rainier Tower. You can register online for this "FUNdraiser," or sign up in person at the event. Are you in awesome stair-climbing shape? You can register for multiple go-rounds of the stairs: 40, 60, 80 or 120 floors. As of this writing, they're up to 60% of their fundraising goal, so there's definitely room to pitch in!
On Saturday February 7th, walkability nonprofit FeetFirst does its third annual Stairway Walks Day. Feet First's Walking Ambassadors (including the two of us) will lead groups of up to 35 people on one of 13 neighborhood stairway excursions that day, all of them based on routes in our book. If you haven't yet gone out to explore them, it's a great way to get your feet roaming on Seattle's scenic byways!
