  1. Revisiting one of the best Stair Climb events in the West Coast, I am heading to Los Angeles in less than a week to Stair Climb the 75 floor US Bank Tower in my full TD gear. I will be climbing the tower once without armour, so I can qualify for the next World Towerrunning Race; and climb the stairs for a second time with my full Sandtrooper armour on, in the spirit of charity and community work we do as a Garrison and the Legion. The fundraiser I am doing here is for the YMCA Downtown LA kids and youth program. If you have some spare change or coffee money, donate to my cause on my page before September 22nd. My target time: 14 minutes -- No amrour 15 minutes -- With armour 4 minutes 20 seconds -- when I consume my post race burger and electrolyte drink There is a part of this event where we have to walk 5 floors down to catch the elevator for our race exit. I am aware of that stupid video floating around of a Rubies TK tripping over the stairs on the way down. SO here is my suggestion to the donation: If you think I am going to make it to the top in under 15 minutes, donate $1 If you think I can climb the tower twice, donate $3. If you think I can climb to the top and walk back down the stairs, donate $5. And if I fail completely in all three categories, blue milk is on me. ( I will also take a photo with the MEPD patch when I am on the roof top of the US Bank Tower. ) Donate now: http://events.ymcala.org/site/TR/Events/General?px=1445681&pg=personal&fr_id=1570

  3. Is it just me or does the Willis Tower looks a bit like the Barad-dûr in Lord of the Rings ? http://ric.convio.net/site/TR?fr_id=1130&pg=entry Skyrise Chicago. A stair climbing event that supports the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. Formerly the Sears Tower, now known as the Willis Tower. Technically it is 110 floors, but participants only have to stair climb 103 floors to the observation deck. Yes, you can take a snooze afterwards on the glass floor patio. Why am I doing this ? I have been stair climbing for sport and charity for the last 4 years, all in armour. I want to challenge myself and give back to the community. 501st style. I have never been in a building taller than 80 floors. So this is going to be my next challenge. I'm going to once again Stair Climb in my Sandtrooper armour, push for 40 minutes to complete 103 floors, and raise $150 to donate to the Institute of Chicago. Matt Frysztak, aka Hitman, TK 8596 from the Midwest Garrison will be joining me on the adventures to conquer the fire stair ways of one of North America's tallest free standing skyscrapper! I will be in Sandtrooper amrour lite, with no pack on, full speed sprinting. This event also takes place 2 days before my birthday. Just saying. Support our cause, donate: http://ric.convio.net/site/TR?px=1285850&fr_id=1130&pg=personal
  4. ( Like a TV show recap ) Previously on Stair Climb Adventures: Imperial Sandtrooper TD-9815 was not satisfied with his final results in his Stair Climb at the Sheraton Wall Center in 2014. So he pushed harder in his training in 2015. He reached his new Personal Best at 8:42 seconds, and climbed the 42 floors twice. And now, it's time to take on a taller building. 98 second Teaser: Destination: Los Angeles, California. Building: The U.S Bank Tower ( Formerly known as the Library Building ) Floors: 75 Cause: Fundraising for the YMCA Downtown LA Community programs Goal: Climb 75 floors in 14 minutes ( Maintaining the current Personal best based on this years climb in Vancouver ) On September 25th 2015, Get ready for the next chapter of Imperial Stair Climbing Adventures! Want to help ? Donate here: http://events.ymcala.org/site/TR/Events/General?px=1445681&pg=personal&fr_id=1160 This is going to be my first time stair climbing outside of Vancouver. If it all goes well, I am going to try attending the CN Tower stair climb in Toronto. If you still don't know which building I am stair climbing in LA, it's the first building that got blasted by the aliens in the movie Independence Day. 8)
  5. **********************INCOMING TRANSMISSION: EYES ONLY ****************************** Operation Diamond Plate: Actual Event: Stair Climb for Clean Air 2015, Vancouver, BC. The British Columbia Lung Association has been hosting this event for over a decade. Participants raise money for lung health by climbing 48 floors of stairs in a non competitive and competitive way. Climbers range from as little as the age of 5 to athletes in their 80's. Firefighters from across the province attend every year by climbing with their full rescue gear on. And then there was one TD. Three years ago, I told the world that I would take the stairs in my full armour on. Results: 8 minutes 50 seconds. However, that's nothing to brag about, because last year, my time fell back on 10 minutes and 5 seconds. I was not satisfied with my performance, so I went rouge and trained even harder in the last 5 months. So in 2015, I will need to finish the climb under 8 minutes 45 seconds. That is my ultimate goal. So join me fellow Imperials, Rebels, Bounty Hunters and citizens of a galaxy far far away, help me raise over $700, support and bring awareness to Lung Health and other active healthful lifestyle, OR come out to the actual event on March 1st 2015. And for anyone who is from another Garrison that wants to join my stair climbing team, you are more than welcome to contact me. Last year, Katie Dueckman, our reserved TI / Imperial officer climbed it and crushed the stairs. It's never too late to join the "raid" ! The Empire's secret weapon.
