Welcome to David Marques' Fundraising Page
Hello! I will be participating in Big Climb Seattle this year. Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers.
I recently accepted the challenge of participating in the 2020 Big Climb benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I was recruited by my good friend Tom Monahan (he worked with me at the Woodland Park Zoo in 2004-05, and we’ve maintained a friendship ever since. Unfortunately his young daughter, Elise, was diagnosed with Leukemia a couple of years ago. Thankfully she is just about to wrap up treatment and appears to have a positive outlook going forward.
In addition, as many of you have experienced different forms of cancer are all too common in our society. My mom is a breast cancer survivor, go mom! Please help me in raising funds to end these diseases.
What is the Big Climb?
The Big Climb is a stair climb 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!
