It's that time of year again! I'm doing The Big Climb up Columbia Tower with my family on Sunday, March 23rd. Won't you join us in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society with a sweet donation?
The Big Climb is 69 flights of stairs, 1311 steps, and 788 feet of vertical elevation up the Columbia Tower - the tallest skyscraper in downtown Seattle. I did the climb for the first time last year and though it was a painful, sweaty, crowded experience, it's nothing compared to what blood cancer patients endure in their fight.
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 7 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.
I'm proud to be climbing again this year and look forward to helping raise even more to fund the efforts of the LLS.
Thank you so much for your support!
