At 788 feet of vertical elevation, the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle is the tallest building in the Pacific Northwest. This year, after two years of climbing around the country in our own communities, we plan to return to the Columbia Center once again. It takes 69 flights of stairs, or 1,311 steps, to reach the newly renovated Sky View Observatory with breathtaking views of the entire Puget Sound region. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb event raises money through individual and team fundraising, sponsorship and entry fees which is then invested in its mission to fund blood cancer research and support services for patients. In 2018, the Big Climb raised a record-breaking $3,007,080. Big Climb Seattle will be taking place on Sunday, March 27, 2022.
