Corporate Climb: Marriott School students host exercise fundraiser

Marriott School students, faculty and administrators are challenged to race the stairs for the BYU Annual Fund. The event will take place in the Tanner Building on Saturday, March 26, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

"Last year was a great success and we were able to raise a lot of money for a great cause," says James Clark, second-year MBA student and graduate student council president. "This year is looking to be even better than last year."

  • On your mark: Runners will climb the atrium stairs to the fourth floor move to the east stairwell and finish climbing to the seventh floor. They will then cross to the west stairwell and return to the first floor, creating a loop. Runners can choose to participate in seven- or three-lap races, either individually or in relay teams. Individual runners can also choose to participate in the 16-lap race, which is equivalent to running up and down the Empire State Building almost one and a half times.

  • Get set: Participants can run themselves or join a relay team. Individual runners are requested to give a $15 donation to the Annual Fund. Relay team members are asked to donate $10. Anyone can sponsor a runner for $5. All student contributions will be matched 5 to 1 by friends of the university. Faculty, alumni and administrator donations will be matched 1 to 1.

  • Go: Prizes will be awarded for fastest times, highest number of sponsors and best costumes. All participants receive a free t-shirt and refreshments. As a new feature for this year's race, participants can register or sponsor a runner online at marriottschool.byu.edu/corporateclimb/. Participants can also register in 490 Tanner Building through Friday, March 25.

    The Marriott School Student Council and student chapters of the Management Society are hosting the race. Sponsors include: BYU Annual Fund; Wells Fargo; Tahitian Noni; First Capital Advisors, L.C.; KPMG; Brick Oven; Goldsmith Co. Jewelers; Panda Express and Hogi Yogi.
