Time for my Big Climb ask again!
Climb. Conquer. Cure.
March 26th, 2023
Hello to my Very generous family and friends! I will be participating in Big Climb Seattle again in March. Our efforts 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.
Depending on covid numbers, I may choose to make the climb outdoors for the 3rd year in a row. This is a photo of my climbing buddy, Heidi and me after climbing 1300 plus stairs at Richmond Beach earlier this year. It was much better seeing the Sound in the fresh air than 6000 of my closest mouth breathing friends in an unventilated staircase!
I VERY much appreciate all your help over the many years I have been climbing for LLS. Next year will by my 11th consecutive and for the last 5 or 6 I have been in the top 5 individual fundraisers - ONLY because of your help! So, I am asking for your generosity once again.
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!
