On September 22, Cushman & Wakefield rose to the challenge to climb the tallest stairwell west of the Mississippi for a worthy cause: Twenty employees from various Greater Los Angeles offices, led by team captain Mike Condon, Jr., raced 1,664 steps to the top of the U.S. Bank Tower in Downtown LA for the 24th Annual YMCA Stair Climb for Los Angeles.

At 1,005 feet, the U.S. Bank Tower is the third tallest building in California and stands 75 stories high. Cushman & Wakefield’s Brianne Carrillo, Katie Cowan, Brianna Demus, Michael Gooch, Spencer Ingram, Morgan Jackson, Eric Kenas, Daniel MacDonnell, Eric Melendez-Lluch, Roberto Mendoza, Corina Morrison, Arianna Nienow, Erich Paraso, Sarah Peevey, Jennifer Price, Emilia Prunean, George Qiao, Kelli Snyder, and Jae Yoo all participated in the stair climb to raise over $5,000 for the fundraiser. Afterwards, the team celebrated at the post-climb block party complete with games, live bands, food trucks, and a beer garden.

“The Downtown Y plays such an integral part in helping at-risk youth improve their lives for the better. It speaks volumes about the growing corporate culture at Cushman & Wakefield that we sponsored this event,” said Mike Condon, Jr., Executive Managing Director and member of the Ketchum-Downtown Board of Managers. “I am so proud of the great turnout from our Southern California team and the amazing show of support for our community.”

The Ketchum-Downtown YMCA serves thousands of community members with programs such as preschool and day care, the Growing Young Minds after school program, teen programs, summer resident camp, youth sports, college prep, community health fairs, and more. This year’s Stair Climb for Los Angeles had over 3,000 participants who raised a total of $663,000 for local YMCA community programs in support of children, teens, families, and seniors in some of the most under-resourced neighborhoods in the city.
