Event Updates

It’s no secret that COVID-19 has done a lot to change the landscape of our year, and even planning is no exception. The Trek Up the Tower team has been working diligently to discuss our options for Trek 2021. Based on what we know now and our desire to hold a safe and comfortable event for all, we have decided to do what we can to hold an in-person Trek Up the Tower event in 2021: postpone until the Spring.

While we're sorry we won't get to see you as early in the year as we'd like, we believe that postponing the event to May will ensure better chances to have a safe in-person event. The Wellbeing Partners and First National Bank of Omaha will meet at the end of this year to assess further safety steps regarding the May 8 Trek Up the Tower. If in 2021 it is still determined to be too risky to plan an in-person event, we will transition to a virtual format.

We will continue to update you as we go! In the meantime, keep a lookout for training resources and giveaways coming your way this Fall by following us on Facebook and Instagram (@trekupthetower)! Keep climbing!
