Hustle Testimonials

“Sunday was the fourth time I participated in this event, and each year I am impressed at the work and enthusiasm shown.  Most important is the focus on respiratory health and lung-related issues.  I always leave the event so very grateful for healthy lungs—and very mindful that many others are not able to feel the same.” – MAUREEN

“It was definitely a challenge to complete but in the end, it was one of the most rewarding accomplishments I ever had!” – SUANA

“This event is one that brings so many people together for such a great cause. Very well-run again. This is my third trip up those 1,632 steps.” – BUTCH

“This was my first time and I had a fantastic time. It also went for a great charity that is devoted to, among other things, helping children with asthma. Having friends who either suffered from this affliction or had children with it, I know that this is a worthy endeavor.” – EARL

“Everyone loved the event, per usual. We were pleasantly surprised that the starting line was ahead of schedule, and we actually stayed at the expo for longer than we have in past years. There are also two particularly cheery volunteers congratulating people when they come up to the Expo – they’ve been doing that as long as I have been doing the event, and I have to say they are just the best – their energy keeps people amped up. Thank you again for putting on a great event – let me know when it’s time to sign up next year, I’m certain we’re in as always!” – KATHLEEN, Vista, Corp

“Great event… the entire team is still on a high from yesterday!” – BRIAN, Blueair North America

“Yesterday’s event was fantastic! Our employees enjoyed the climb, and the post-race celebration. The reception on the 95th prior to the event was great as well. This event has a great impact on our employees and in the community, and I look forward to our continued partnership in the up and coming years. – EMILYANN, Federal-Mogul Motorparts
