Ready, Set, Climb!

Yes, I'm thinking about climbing them!
I've seen two different groups that host skyscraper climbs to raise money. One group is the "Fight for Air" climbs that raise money for the American Lung Association and the other raises money forThe Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The particular event I'm looking at is the Big D Climb. It is in Dallas on January 29th and raises money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This vertical race goes up 52 floors for a total of 1,040 steps.
Has anyone participated in one of these events? I can climb up 50 floors in 15 minutes on a stair step machine. And, that's pretty comfortable. I wonder how different it would be racing up a building?
I haven't finalized my plans to do this race, but if I do, does anyone want to join me? We could form a SP team. I need to check with my husband's plans for that weekend & my mom's, since I'd be needing a bed at her house!
I'm excited to find something so 'different' to try. I think I'll be heading to the gym to use the stair step machine today!
I found a place that lists climbing events not only in the US, but around the world! Here's the site: www.towerrunning.com/eng
