The journey to curing MS has its ups and downs. Join us as we climb up and down the stairs at Gillette Stadium to raise critical funds for the nearly 1 million people living with MS in the United States.
Event Day Details Coming Soon!
The Climb to the Top Experience
Climb to the Top MS will give you a one-of-a-kind experience to take on the stairs and climb to the top of Gillette Stadium.
Your climb will start from an exclusive spot in Gillette Stadium, where you will then climb up and down the stairs, serpentine-style, with rest stops along the way to refuel. You’ll also have time to take in the view as you reflect on how your efforts are changing the world for the nearly 1 million people living with MS in the United States.
At the finish line, you will be greeted by an incredible view, a cheer section, uplifting music, a finish line medal and a place to gather to enjoy concession-style food and drinks!
Completing Climb to the Top MS requires about the same effort as running a 5K (3.1 miles). Those who’ve completed a 5K should be able to complete the stair climb without extensive stair climbing practice.
We can't wait to see you on the stairs!
Climb Course Challenge
Get your competitive juices flowing and join our Climb Course Challenge! Climbers who want to get extra sweaty will receive a star each time they cross the finish line and have their name added to our leaderboard. The person with the most stars at the end of the event will win a special prize (and bragging rights!).
Know Before You Go
You must fundraise at least $250 ($100 for Minor Climbers) to participate in Climb to the Top.
Climb to the Top MS is giving you an inside look and one-of-a-kind experience to break out of the stairwell and climb in the open air at Gillette Stadium.
Here’s what makes it so iconic:
- Located in Foxborough, Massachusetts, Gillette Stadium is home to the New England Revolution and New England Patriots, six time Superbowl Champions.
- The stadium is 16 stories tall and has 68,000 seats.
- On a typical game day, Patriots fans eat more than one ton of Italian sausage and warm up with 186 gallons of clam chowder.
- 432 concerts have been hosted at Gillette from some of music’s biggest artists.
- Architects used local references when building Gillette including a 12-story lighthouse (based on numerous New England lighthouses) and a pedestrian bridge (resembling Longfellow Bridge in Boston).
Hit your fundraising minimum and you'll earn the official event t-shirt and a medal!
