Help—Frequently asked questions

What should I do if my company's team intends to underwrite my $150 fundraising requirement?

For climbers who are being financially sponsored by their firms, please make arrangements with your employer to be reimbursed for your $150 fundraising requirement or have your employer contact Her Justice (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to pay Her Justice directly. Your employer can also cover the $150 requirement by check or credit card. Payment details must be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. no later than Wednesday, October 14.

If my team has raised a lot of money, but I have not reached the $150 fundraising minimum, can I still climb? 

No, you cannot climb unless you personally raise, pledge or contribute $150 to the Story by Story® event. Please read the full details about this requirement.

We encourage all participants to raise or contribute $150 via the Story by Story event website no later than the event day, October 21. Climbers can also pledge to raise or contribute $150 after the event, by November 6.

Registrants can bring payment with them to the event; please bring payment to the Help Desk before or after checking in at the general Check-in Area. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted.

As part of the registration process for all climbers, your credit card information will be securely captured and saved. Your credit card will be charged any remaining balance, if you have not raised or personally contributed $150 by November 6. You will be notified before November 6 about any remaining balance which is owed, before your credit card is charged.

Can the Story by Story staff register members for a team?

Our staff cannot register any team members for the event. All team members must register directly through the event website and acknowledge a medical waiver as part of the process.

If employees of a current sponsor wish to form a team, does the fundraising minimum still apply to these registrants?

Yes, all registrants—regardless if their employer is a sponsor—are personally responsible for the $150 fundraising miniumum.

Can a team have more than one captain?

Yes, your team can have two or more co-captains. However, a Her Justice staff person will have to set this up for you. Please contact 646.442.1364 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

How many people can be on a team?

Teams should have at least 3 members, but there is no maximum number of members.

Do I need to be part of a team?

No, you can be an individual climber, without a team.

I've registered as an individual, but want to switch to being a team member. What do I do?

Please call 646.442.1364 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and a staff member will manually adjust your registration.

What if a team member needs to cancel his/her registration?

Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and a staff person can delete the registration. However, team members' $50 registration fees are not refundable. In addition, their personal fundraising pages may remain searchable on the Story by Story site—we suggest that the members add language to their pages to indicate that they are no longer participating in the climb. Climbers who cancel their registration by the event day, October 21, will not be charged any remaining balance of the $150 fundraising requirement. Cancellation must be in writing, by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If I did not create a "Personal Web Page Link" (a short URL name) for my team fundraising page, can I change it later?

Yes, please log in to your team's HQ page. Next, click on the "My Web Page" tab. The "Personal Web Page Link" field is located in the "Edit Your Team Page" section. Please call 646.442.1364 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have any problems.

Can my team climb together or take photos together?

In order to reduce wait times for climbers and to relieve congestion in the stairwells, we will assign staggered check-in times, which will range from 5:30 pm–6:45 pm. Detailed information will be posted on the Story by Story website by Friday evening, October 16—check here.  Each climber will receive an assigned check-in time by email on Monday, October 19.

Your team should be able to climb together if every team member registered for the same route and if all team members arrive on time. If a team member has registered to do a shorter/longer route, he or she will be assigned a different check-in time than the rest of the group. If team members arrive later than their assigned check-in times, we cannot guarantee that they can participate at all.

If your team wishes to take photos together, but members are finishing at different times, you should plan to meet at the Finish Line party once you complete your climb.
