Team Carter K
Hello! Our team will be participating in Big Climb Seattle on Saturday, May 15th. Please support us by joining our team and/or with a donation by clicking the 'donate now' button above. Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers.
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. The video below captures the true spirit of the Big Climb.
THIS event will be held virtually for 2021! Plan to log your climb via stadium stairs, a stair climber, or a hike!
Many reasons, but this event we climb in honor or Carter K, recently diagnosed in the Fall of 2020.
I have done this even about 10 times, and everyone from the participants, volunteers, organizers, and so on are a wonderful community full of love, support, and kindness, something we could all use a little more of right now and always.
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.
