THE STAIR CLIMB
The Eureka Stair Climb is a community and fundraising event for The Fred Hollows Foundation at Australia's tallest residential building, the Eureka Tower in Southbank, Melbourne. Participants challenge themselves to climb up 1,642 stairs to level 88 - Eureka Skydeck.
The Climb has event categories to test all ability levels, from elite athletes and emergency services workers to fitness fanatics or walkers. Anyone over 12 years of age is welcome to participate!
In 2019, a new Virtual Stair Climb event has been added so that people can participate in the event from anywhere in Australia at a time and place that suits them.
The event raises funds for The Fred Hollows Foundation, an organisation committed to keeping alive Fred Hollows' dream of ending avoidable blindness by restoring sight to people in more than 25 countries around the world.
Find out more about this sight restoring work and its impact around the globe at the The Foundation website.
