Your Support Matters

Did you know the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is a 501c3 nonprofit?
At Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, we not only care for patients, but also help them return to full lives. To meet this goal, we offer a number of programs designed to enhance the quality of life for people who have lost ability due to serious injury or chronic conditions. These programs are unique, but many are not generally covered by insurance.
Shirley Ryan AbilityLab has incurred increased expenses and significant revenue loss during the COVID-19 pandemic. This event will serve as the foundation for fundraising and financial recovery. We respect the reality that all of the same concerns have added stress to your life, and so, we ask for your support of this event with humility.




Every dollar you raise will help us provide better outcomes for our patients. 

  1. Embrace the challenge and raise at least $103 for every floor of the Willis Tower
  2. Engage with 21 friends on social media and ask them to donate $5
  3. Reach out to those closest to you and ask for a $103 donation in support of Shirley Ryan AbilityLab
