CRAIG'S LEGS was formed in honor of Colin Craig, a Burien area dentist who was diagnosed with Follicular Lymphoma in 2013. After participating in a clinical trial at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance with the goal of finding a better initial therapy, Colin is now in remission. Colin has benefited from cell targeting and immunotherapy treatments, both of which are the future of cancer treatments. Please help us find the cure for cancer.
2019 marks the sixth year of the “climbing” Craig’s Legs team. With the support of family, friends, friends of friends, patients, Nakanishi Dental Lab and their employees, we have enjoyed both financial and emotional support as we continue to help find cures and better treatments, not only for blood cancers, but all cancers. This year, Craig’s Legs will be close to raising an accumulative total of $320,000 in support of ending this terrible disease. WAY TO GO, TEAM! Please help us reach our goal by joining our climbing team, volunteering or supporting us as we climb to end cancer!
Please support our team members, listed on the team roster on the right, by going to their individual web pages and generously donating to our fight to cure ALL cancer.
WE HATE CANCER!
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 below 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.
