How? 
Turn up with a pair of good shoes and your determination. Bring you, friends and family, too! If you are unable to make it, you can still join us virtually. Join the interest group, and share a screenshot of the number of storeys you have climbed to encourage one another.
Why?
A patient recently inspired us with his journey to climb Mount Kinabalu despite his diagnosis of lung cancer! In the same spirit, let’s all do a little climb of our own! So why stair climb? Because exercising is good for you.
