Participants who do not raise the minimum will not be allowed to participate in future Big Climbs. When LLS was founded in 1949, a blood cancer diagnosis was almost always fatal. Most leukemia patients, especially children, died within three months. Even by the mid-1950s, when the first-generation chemotherapy drugs began appearing, the disease remained a stubborn challenge. Thanks in part to innovative research funded by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), survival rates have doubled, tripled and even quadrupled for blood cancer patients. LLS is a driving force behind breakthroughs in treating blood cancer patients. Because the event has to be capped at 6,000 participants and last year there were over 2,000 people on a waitlist, it is vital for the Big Climb to maximize participant’s fundraising efforts.

Q: Can I conduct a raffle to raise money for LLS?

A: Probably not. Only if you are a member of a non-profit or membership organization that holds a valid raffle license in Washington or Alaska, may legally conduct a raffle for LLS. The Washington / Alaska Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society chooses not to hold a raffle/gaming license because of the significant administrative burden, high cost and personal liability it places on LLS and its staff.

For more information on Washington State raffle/games of chance rules, please click here: Washington Gaming Rules and for Alaska’s rules, please click here: Alaska Gaming Rules

It is important to know the raffle and gaming laws in the state in which you reside. As a volunteer raising funds for LLS you are bound by those laws when holding a raffle of any kind, including knowing the types of prizes that are lawfully allowed.

Participants past and present, as well as sponsors, patient honorees, volunteers and staff have worked incredibly hard over the years to build Big Climb into a world-class fundraising event.  We know that you are working extremely hard in helping us meet our fundraising goals and for that we are grateful. Like you, we want to protect the stellar reputation of Big Climb for years to come.
