How long does a typical climb take?
Most reasonably-fit people should be able to finish all 43 floors in less than 45 minutes, but climbers can take as many breaks as necessary as long as they finish their route by 9:00 pm. Check out 2012 climbers' time results.
Will photographs be taken at the event?
Yes, Her Justice photographers will be present during registration, the opening ceremony, the stair climb and the Finish Line party. Photos will be made available to all participants after the event.
If your team wishes to take photos together, but members are finishing at different times, you should plan to meet at the Finish Line party (in the lobby) once you complete your climb. All team photos will take place in the Park Avenue lobby, NOT at the Finish Line itself.
Please be aware that by consenting to be photographed at Story by Story®, you are giving Her Justice permission to use your image on its web site and print pieces and to share your image with media outlets. If you do not wish to be photographed, please alert Her Justice's photographers during the event.
A link to climbers' times will be emailed to all participants a few days after the event. Due to the complicated structure of the stairwells, some timing chips may malfunction, and we cannot guarantee a timing chip result for all climbers.
Can I continue to fundraise after the event?
Yes, you can continue to do extra fundraising until Thursday, October 31. We encourage everyone to take advantage of the post-event period to continue their fundraising—every little bit helps Her Justice and you might become eligible for a fundraising prize or honor! But remember that the $100 fundraising minimum is due online by October 14, 9:00 am.
How do I or my contacts receive credit for tax-deductible donations to Story by Story?
