Policy for Climb to the Top Participants Ages 7-11

The New York City - Southern New York Chapter has several requirements for Climb to the Top participants under the age of 12 intended to ensure the safety of young stair climbers and to encourage them to raise funds to create a world free of MS.

All participants must be 7 years of age or older on the day of the event and will only be permitted to participate in our Family Division. Participants must also have raised the fundraising minimum of $250 in order to receive a packet containing mandatory event day materials.  

The following requirements apply to all participants between the ages of 7-11: 

  • All participants ages 7-11 are required to pay a registration fee and meet the $250 fundraising minimum prior to receiving event day materials.
  • Participants between the ages of 7-11 will only be permitted to start in the Family Division, which is scheduled to be the final start time of the day.
  • Participants between the ages of 7-11 must be accompanied by an adult, age 21 or older, at all times during the event. The adult who climbs with the participant must be registered for the event and meet the minimum fundraising requirement.
  • If the parent/legal guardian is not climbing with the minor, he/she must be available by phone during the event in case of an emergency.
