Hustle Up The Hancock


In collaboration with the Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago, Northwestern Medicine has provided medical coverage for the annual Hustle Up The Hancock event since 2014. Each year, thousands of participants complete a full or half climb up Chicago's John Hancock Center staircase to bring awareness to lung disease and promote respiratory health. Lead by EM Faculty, Dr. Christopher Richards, Northwestern employees and university students work together to monitor participant safety during the one day event.
