Air Force Association Stair Climb

In recognition of Veterans Day, the Air Force Association (AFA) is sponsoring a “Climb for the Vets” on November 5, 2016 at 200 Clarendon Street in Boston (formerly the John Hancock Tower).  Climbers have the opportunity to run up all 60 floors…but more importantly, they will have the opportunity to raise money to support Boston’s own New England Center and Home for Veterans.

Get started on your “Climb for the Vets” and register today at!  Rally the support of family, friends, co-workers and uniformed professionals to help reach your goal.  Along the way, you will be helping the men and women who served our nation when we needed them.
