Terry CLIMBS - You DONATE
Chances are that someone you know has heard a blood cancer diagnosis. Although I’m not trained as a medical professional or a researcher, I can still help in finding treatments and cures. I do that by donating to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and by climbing the Columbia Tower each year. You can help too! Your support and donation will make a difference.
On Sunday, March 24th, I will be climbing The Columbia Tower for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society's annual Big Climb. This will be year 13 for me! Each year I carry the names of friends and family up the Tower with me for support. I'd be honored to add your family and friends who have been affected by blood cancers to my list too.
Please support my efforts with a donation by clicking the orange 'donate now' button! Every dollar will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers.
Over the past 12 years I have raised over $65,000 for LLS by climbing. I look forward to seeing that number soar over $80,000 this year. Every donation received will get me one step closer to my goal. I'm committed to the training it takes to reach the top...what I need now is your support.
What is the Big Climb?
The Big Climb is a stairclimb up the Columbia Center - the tallest skyscraper in downtown Seattle. There are 69 floors of stairs, 1311 steps, and 788 feet of vertical elevation. Although it will be challenging, it pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients go through. All proceeds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The video at the bottom of my page captures the true spirit of the Big Climb.
Who is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society?
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. The mission of LLS is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Every day, more than 347 LLS sponsored researchers come closer to the goal of finding a cure for leukemia and related blood cancers. Locally, LLS funds 10 researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and University of Washington Medical Center. Your support and commitment to the mission of LLS enables us to continue this important work of saving lives and aids us in our ability to reach patients in our community.
Thank you for your time and I hope that you will consider donating to this cause
