Join #TeamCAF this year for the 46th Annual Empire State Building Run-Up on October 9, 2024! Once a year, the 94-year-old Empire State Building shuts down its elevators and opens its stairwell for the iconic Empire State Building Run-Up. The Run-Up — the world’s first and most famous tower race – challenges runners from near and far to race up its famed 86 flights – 1,576 stairs.

CAF serves as the official charity sponsor for the Run-Up with a designated division for athletes with permanent physical disabilities and CAF supporters who raise funds to empower lives through sports, aiming to move beyond awareness and into acceptance. By registering here, you can bypass the lottery and run with #TeamCAF with a guaranteed charity fundraising entry.
