Climbers prepare to race up 42 flights of stairs at the Corning Tower at the Empire State Plaza for the annual Stair Climb to benefit Cystic Fibrosis. Over the past 24 years, almost $1 million has been raised to fund research on the disease and help find a cure. This year's Stair Climb will be on Thursday, March 7.
