Thank you for visiting the CRAIG'S LEGS team web page. We have assembled over 50 climbers and volunteers for Big Climb 2020 on Sunday, March 22, 2020. Over the past seven years our team has raised over $320,000 in support of the mission of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Please visit the web pages of our team members by clicking on their names listed to the right and donate generously to the climb in support of those battling blood cancers.
CRAIG'S LEGS was formed in honor of Colin Craig, a Burien area dentist who was diagnoised with Follicular Lymphoma in 2013. After participating in a clinical trial at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance with the goal of finding a better initial therapy, Colin is now in remission. Colin has benefited from cell targeting and imunotherapy treatments, both of which are the future of cancer treatments. Please help us find the cure for cancer.
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. The video below captures the true spirit of the Big Climb.
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 to the tune of $3.2 million. 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.
