Climbing to beat Leuk

Well, I’m going for it again. I will be participating in the 31st Annual Big Climb on Sunday, March 26th.

I’ve started my fundraising a little late this year and have only until March 26th to raise at least $500.

You can sponsor my climb with a donation by clicking the ‘donate’ button on my Fundraising Page. Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers. All of the donations go directly to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to fight leukemia and related blood cancers.

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 many of my readers are going through. All proceeds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Take a look at the  video above. It captures the true spirit of the Big Climb.

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.

Thanks for your support.
