Next Week: Teza Sponsors After-School All-Stars Stair Climb 2015

Teza has supported After School All-Stars programming in Chicago over the past few years, and the company is getting its New York office involved with an upcoming event. Teza is challenging its employees to climb 68 floors of 4 World Trade Center as part of the After-School All-Stars Stair Climb. It is 1200 feet to the top of 4 World Trade Center.
The climb starts at 5:00 PM October 22, 2015.

This fitness event mirrors the challenge that ASAS poses to their All-Star Students every day. Dream big. Reach for the stars. Make healthy lifestyle choices and engage in physical activity on a daily basis. ASAS has issued the same challenge to their network of supporters, and Teza doesn’t back down from a challenge!
