BOSTON (CBS) — About 1,000 people participated Sunday in the third annual ClimbCorps fund-raiser in the city to help fight heart disease.
The event, which featured a 38-flight ascent at Exchange Place on State Street, raised money for heart disease education, medical programs and research.
ClimbCorps is associated with Brigham and Women’s Hospital, which crafted a six-week training program for ClimbCorps participants that included several stretching and strengthening exercises. Anyone 11 or older was eligible to participate.
