Climbing to fight Leukemia and other blood cancers
Hello! This is my third year to participate in Big Climb Seattle.
This year I will climb in memory of my niece Claire Cochran and our neighbor, John Remington. Think of the progress made since my dear 4 year old niece, Claire, passed away in 1987. People are living longer and better lives with the treatments available today.
However, the need for new and better treatment options continues.
In prior years, John Remington, with his charming enthusiasm persuaded a bunch of us 60+ years old to join him in climbing all 69 floors and 1311 stairs of the Columbia Center Tower. John, at age 81, and fighting myeloma, beat me to the top of the tower in 2017. Sadly, John lost his battle with this disease and passed away in 2018. This year, we have an enthusiastic team composed of Hansville friends and family climbing in John's memory this year. We'll have pom-poms and signs. You're welcome to join us at the bottom of the Columbia Center Tower. Our start time is 8:30 AM Sunday March 24.
