The 21st annual Aon Step Up for Kids is scheduled for Sunday morning in the city’s third-tallest skyscraper, the 1,136-foot Aon Center at 200 East Randolph Street. This event, which starts at 8 a.m., raises money for the roughly 200,00 patients who are treated annually at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. More than 2,500 charitable participants, who have helped this year’s function amass approximately $586,000, will attempt to climb the Aon Center’s 80 floors and 1,643 steps.

Upon climbing the colossal building’s stairwell, a party will be hosted on the 80th floor for the Mid-America Club Finish Line Celebration. The celebration includes live music performed by Spakl and complimentary food and beverages. Medals will be mailed to the top three female and male finishers after results are released at 12 p.m. on Monday.

Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, ranked as the top pediatric hospital in Illinois and seventh overall in the U.S., is located at 225 East Chicago Avenue.
