Team Lesie Cakes
We are climbing for Lesie, who's strength, stamina and endurance will power us up all 1,311 steps of the Columbia Center.
Her treatments, and journey toward a cure, continues until March 30, 2020.
Here's how you can help:
Join the team - each climber on our team will need to raise $150 by climb day, March 24, 2019. For the climb, we'll step our way to the top for Lesie.
Donate to the team - every dollar counts and proceeds go to an amazing cause!
Come train with us - the last training is on March 9 at Howe Street Stairs, starting at 9 a.m.
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.
