Why I Climb
Climb | Conquer | Cure
Sunday, March 22, 2020 | Seattle
I'm honored to kick off this year's Team T-Mobile Big Climb 2020 campaign with my co-captain Ian! And while we can't wait to climb with our fellow Magenta Climbers, we're excited to simply be a part of this amazing effort to raise money & awareness in the fight against blood cancers.
If you wish to join us in that effort, please consider climbing with us ("Join Scott's Team" button) or support our fundraising efforts by clicking the "Donate now" button on the right-hand menu.
I realize there are MANY deserving causes out there today, so no matter how you choose to #UseYourPowersForGood, Thank You for making a difference!

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.
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!
