Columbia Tower in SeattleWe did it! Last Sunday (3-26-17) My son and I scaled the Columbia Tower in Seattle to raise money for leukemia research – 69 floors, 1,311 steps straight up. I foolishly hadn’t trained at all for it so legs felt like lead and I had to make several rest stops, but we came in at 35 minutes. Whew, I’ve really got to hit the gym this year so I can beat that time next year… wow, I didn’t realized how I’d let myself go.

Over 6,000 people participated raising millions of dollars.

The “Big Climb” takes place every year in Seattle. The Columbia Tower (actually called the Columbia Center) is the tallest building in Seattle and the second tallest west of the Mississippi.
