Happenings at the Skydeck

There’s a number of different events and opportunities to see at the Skydeck.


Virtual SkyRise Chicago 2020

For the first time ever, no matter where you live or what your connection may be, you can step up in support of Shirley Ryan AbilityLab by participating in this years VIRTUAL SkyRise Chicago.

Together, every step we take will not only help us care for our patients, but will help them return to full lives. Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, is the global leader in physical medicine and rehabilitation for adults and children with the most severe, complex conditions — from traumatic brain and spinal cord injury to stroke, amputation and cancer-related impairment.

While the global pandemic has stopped us from climbing the 103 floors of Chicago’s Willis Tower, it can’t stop us from accomplishing the climb at our homes or throughout our neighborhoods. Virtual SkyRise Chicago is your chance to get active, engage with a strong community across the nation and support Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.
