ALBANY - It's the state's tallest skyscraper outside of New York City. On Saturday, hundreds raced to the top of the Corning Tower's 42 floors – some in full firefighter gear.

The 30th annual Cystic Fibrosis Climb was held Saturday morning. The event is designed to teach people how it feels to live with cystic fibrosis, a life threatening disease that effects the lungs and digestive system.
