Virtual Climb

Have a conflict with Hustle 2018 or an injury that keeps you from climbing? You don’t have to miss the Hustle excitement and can still have an impact on RHA’s efforts to help people living with asthma, COPD, lung cancer and other lung diseases. Register as a Hustle 2018 Virtual Climber!

Virtual Climber Benefits

As a registered Virtual Climber, you’ll receive:

  • The official Hustle event performance shirt
  • A keepsake bib
  • The Hustle finisher’s medal

These items will be mailed to you in March 2018. You’ll also receive an access link to the Hustle 2018 Virtual Goodie Bag via email.

Climb (or Don’t) for Healthy Lungs and Clean Air

You can make the fitness challenge a fun part of the virtual experience. Climb on your own in the gym, your basement or your building’s stairwell. However, there is no requirement to prove you’ve climbed 94 flights on your own. Your key role as a Virtual Climber is making a difference through fundraising.

Share with your network that you’re committed to supporting RHA’s mission even though you aren’t able to be at the Hustle event. You’ll have full access to the RHA Fundraising Toolkit and be able to create a personal fundraising page to help with your efforts. You’ll receive the Hustle 2018 emails full of great fundraising tips and encouragement.

Prior to the event, registered Virtual Climbers will be entered in the Hustle fundraising contests when all specific requirements are met. You can also qualify for the Hustle incentive prizes based on your fundraising efforts, including the coveted Hustle Lung Health Champion shirt (in addition to the event shirt) at the $1,000 level.

Please note that registered Virtual Climbers are not be permitted to participate in the climb on event day but are invited to purchase Finish Line Tickets for 360 CHICAGO and attend the Aurelio’s Pizza Hustle After Party.
