OMT16 recognizes the current health crisis and the threat it could pose to our Climbers, POPs (Pediatric Oncology Patients), and families, and we would never want to jeopardize anyone’s health!

The good news is that this virtual climb will be at NO COST to our climbers.⁣

When OMT16 first came up with the idea for a stair climb, our #1 goal was to show our POPs the support and care present for them in our local community. On each of the 20 floors going up and 20 floors going down the State Tower building in Downtown Syracuse a child or family affected by pediatric cancer was represented and, in some cases, physically present. Due to the current climate, that would not be possible this year, and we did not want to lose focus on our main goal – The POPs!⁣


  • Sign up with the easy inquiry form!

  • During the week of November 14th – November 21st, mask up and go to your local gym to use the stairmaster, run a mile in honor of POPs and families battling pediatric cancer, find outdoor stairs and climb 338 steps, walk 338 steps one day specifically for a child battling cancer, or find your own way to honor The Virtual Climb 2020, our mission, and our POPs!
  • While we are not charging Climbers to participate in The Climb 2020, mainly because our goal is to raise awareness and show the pediatric cancer community we are thinking of them during this time, if you can find it in your heart to make a small donation to help us live out our mission, we would greatly appreciate it. You can donate via PayPay HERE.

    Once you sign up to #ClimbCancer with OMT16, we will be reaching out via email to share more information on how you can record your 2020 climb, as well as share your photos and videos with OMT16 so we can share with our POPs and families.

    Also! Each Climber will be receiving a finishers gift this year. Stay tuned for more information.
