Last weekend was the annual Hustle up the Hancock. The event is hosted by the Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago and brings together over 4,000 people to climb to the top of the John Hancock Center to raise funds for lung disease research, advocacy and education.
This event is always a special one for lung transplant recipient Steve Ferkau as he climbs 1,632 steps to the top to honor his donor, Kari. This year was made particularly special as Steve was joined by a couple new fellow transplant recipients, Melissa and Megan.
Hop over to Revive Hope to check out Melissa’s post on her experience. In addition, be sure to check out these Northwest Herald article’s on Megan (part 1 and part 2). Congrats to Megan and Melissa and everyone that joined Steve on on the journey to the top!
