Athletes race to top of 30 Rockefeller Plaza in 'Climb to the Top NYC' to raise money for MS

























Moritz Hafner, 31, was the fastest to the observation deck at the top of the building minutes after the sun rose.

Hundreds of New York athletes raced to the top of 30 Rockefeller Plaza Sunday to raise money for those suffering with multiple sclerosis.

Approximately 1,500 people participated in the 8th annual "Climb to the Top NYC" starting at 6:30 a.m., climbing the 66 floors of the landmark building in minutes.

"It's not a race," organizer Daphne Mack said. "We're all here to raise money for our programs across New York City."

TEEN KEEPS RUNNING AND STARTS WINNING DESPITE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

The group hoped to raise $1 million for research for people living with the disease. About 12,000 people in the region-and 2.3 million worldwide-suffer from MS.

That includes Shamel Schand's sister.

"I saw a poster in the subway and wanted to do it," Shand, 30, said before the run.

"For me it wasn't about the money. If I couldn't get people to fundraise, I would've closed the gap myself," Schand said. "It's about honoring someone I love."

Moritz Hafner, 31, was the fastest to the observation deck at the top of the building minutes after the sun rose.

"I feel totally elevated right now," the Goldman Sachs banker originally from Switzerland said as he tried to catch his breath.

"We have a lot of mountains where I come from, and this is the closest I can get to them," he added. "Come up here to the top of the rock, right at sunrise, it's amazing."

Tricia O'Hara, 49, was the first woman to the top.

She just wore a top with the phrase "This one's for you Shannon!" written in black on her stomach.

"She 's a good friend of mine who was an ultra-endurance runner," O'Hara said. "But she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 10 years ago and now she walks with a cane."
