Climb into the clouds

Southbank resident Anne Lu will climb 1642 steps to the top of Eureka Tower this month and raise much needed money for charity.

Ms Lu will make her way up 88 levels on Sunday, November 15 in what is Australia’s biggest vertical race to raise money for youth charities Whitelion and Interplast Australia and New Zealand.

While she and her corporate team were working hard to try and raise a target of $2000 for the charities, Ms Lu said they were working just as hard to try and beat each other’s times.

“I’m trying to beat another member in my team and get under 15 minutes. They say if you’re fit you can do it within 15,” she said.

In what will be her first time competing in the challenge, she said it was something that she had wanted to do for a long time.

“There wouldn’t be many people that can say that they climbed 1642 steps,” she said.

“It’s a personal physical challenge and I’ve always wanted to do a fun run or something but I think this seems a bit more fun and different.”
