NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — About 1,500 people raced to the top of Rockefeller Center on Sunday morning to raise money for those suffering with multiple sclerosis.
Tim Oakes was among those who climbed up the 66 flights of stairs before most people had their breakfast. He placed first in the annual Climb to the Top race, finishing in a little over nine minutes, WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reported.
“The hardest thing is running in the stairwell,” Oakes said. “It’s like compressed air. It’s like running inside an airplane.”
