7,866 Steps and Counting! 2020 will make it 9,177
Hello! I will be participating in my 7th 'Big Climb Seattle' on Sunday, March 22nd. Please support me with a donation by clicking the 'donate now' button. Your donation will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers.
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 the University of Washington Medical Center. Your support and commitment to the mission of LLS enable us to continue this important work of saving lives and aids us in our ability to reach patients in our community. In 2019, LLS WA/AK Chapter provided more than $793k in local financial support to 467 patients across WA and AK.
Thank you for your time and I hope that you will consider donating to this cause!
