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.
