Sunday, March 24, 2013, I will be participating in my first Big Climb Seattle, a charity event benefiting The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The goal: climb 69 flights of stairs to the top of the Columbia Tower, the tallest building in downtown Seattle. This is my first time in this event, and I'm looking forward to it with a mix of excitement and trepidation. I know I'll survive, but doubt I'll set any speed records.
To be clear, the Columbia Tower is 73 floors high, but the race starts in the lobby on the 4th floor. We'll be climbing 69 flights to the top floor.This being a fundraising event, part of the require preparation is, well, the raising of funds. Let's cut to the chase. Please donate to my Big Climb Seattle fundraising page. Do it now, then come back here. I'll wait.
