Welcome to My Personal Page
Hello! In memory of my husband, Jeff Welch, I will be participating in Big Climb Seattle again this year. 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. As a result of COVID, this year the Big Climb will be held virtually, as it was last year.
Last year I completed the Big Climb from home on an elliptical. This year, weather permitting, I plan to climb Canfield Mountain. I look forward to the day that I can complete the Big Climb at the Columbia Center. All proceeds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Why am I climbing?
Jeff was a fighter - fire fighter and lymphoma fighter. During Jeff's battle with mantle cell lymphoma, we were blessed to have the assistance of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). 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.
I climb to help LLS find a cure for mantle cell lymphoma.
Thank you for your time and I hope that you will consider donating to this cause!
