Matt Richter-Sand, personal
trainer and founder of NX Fitness, will celebrate his 31st birthday this
Saturday by climbing the Santa Monica Stairs 100 times to raise awareness for
the American Diabetes Association.
He says this is the equivalent of climbing
the Empire State Building more than 10 times.
“I couldn’t be more excited to
raise awareness for the American Diabetes Association and celebrate my birthday
by running the stairs 100 times,” Richter-Sand says. “Our lives are never
stagnant – at any given moment, we’re either moving forward or backward. Every
year that passes is another opportunity to turn it all around. I want to start
my 31st year with a bang!”
He will begin the challenge at 6:30 am and
encourages anyone to join him during the feat.
