Each individual climbed 1,664 steps, 75 stories, to the top of the U.S. Bank Tower in Downtown Los Angeles for this 25th Anniversary YMCA Stair Climb challenge.

In addition, JLL received the top fundraising award in the Real Estate category. We’re proud to have contributed nearly $5,500 to support impactful YMCA community programs in and around Downtown Los Angeles. Fundraising supports subsidized YMCA program participation for children, teens, families and seniors in some of the most under-resourced neighborhoods in the city.
