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!
