Thank you for registering as a participant for Step Up for MS on Sunday, 7 June.
Unfortunately, we have just received some news about Step Up for MS that we need to share with you.
Due to circumstances beyond their control, we have been advised by building management at Central Park that completion of their lift replacement project has been delayed, and as a consequence, access to the roof is no longer possible.
We understand the project was planned well in advance and had a completion date some weeks out from the event date. However, due to a delay in completing work on the goods lift, which goes directly from the roof to the ground floor, we are unable to use it.
After weighing up the limited options available and their associated risks, we have decided to amend the course and Step Up for MS will now finish on level 51 - the highest floor in the building.
Fortunately, level 51 is vacant so there is plenty of room for us to use as the finishing line. It also has access to four lifts which go directly to the ground floor, and has uninterrupted views across Perth.
As a consequence of the amended course it means Step Up for MS participants will now have 51 flights and 1,028 steps to conquer. That’s 75 steps less than the normal course.
Other than a slightly shorter course, everything else remains unchanged. It will still be a challenging and rewarding event.
We apologise for any inconvenience, but we are doing our best in difficult circumstances. Step Up for MS is a major fundraising event for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Western Australia and people living with MS. Despite this news, we hope you will continue to support our quest to beat MS.
