Vertical Rush 2016

8th March 2016

Vertical Rush Thumb


Vertical Rush is the tallest tower-running challenge in the UK and returned for 2016! At 42 flights and 932 steps, this is Shelter's flagship charity event and not for the faint hearted. Each year, thousands of people climb Tower 42 to raise money to help families across the country who are struggling with homelessness and bad housing.

To coincide with Shelter's 50th anniversary, this year we aimed to raise £50,000. Over 200 members of Berkeley staff raced up the tower and smashed our target, raising over £56,000.

Shelter is the UK's largest housing and homelessness charity. We have invested nearly half a million pounds in a wide range of services which prevent people losing their home.

Shelter's Housing Advisors provide individual support for people desperately struggling with debt, disrepair or mortgage and rent arrears. Without them, thousands more children and their families would lose their homes. 25% of Shelter's helpline calls are referred to their Housing Advisers for urgent attention.
