42 Stories, 657 Steps: Climb To End Domestic Violence

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

You’ve walked by plenty of skyscrapers in NYC, but have you ever experienced climbing to the top? After work on October 6th, join over 1,000 people in ascending 42 stories and 657 steps in support of inMotion, the non-profit that provides free legal services to battered women and children.

Get your friends together and tag-team the climb, or skip your trip to the gym and tackle the whole thing yourself. Whichever you choose, every step counts.

All you have to do is sign up at and reach the very achievable fundraising goal of $100 per climber. Can’t make the event? “Virtual climbers” are just as important — all you have to do is help raise the funds.

Become a climber for an evening and help change the lives of women and children everywhere. >>
