Farmingdale, NY (05/11/2011) The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Seattle, WA recently held their annual Big Climb event. Steve Cooper, Minuteman Presses Regional Vice President for the Pacific Northwest area, teamed up with Wilma Comenat, campaign director of LLS Seattle, to help raise money for the Society.
On March 20th, 2011 Steve, along with Minuteman Mascot Coach Clock-head, and hundreds of other participants took part in the Big Climb. The event which took place at the Columbia Center in Seattle is geared at raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The Big Climb is a race to see who can get to the top of the Columbia Center, which is the tallest building in Seattle, the fastest. The building has 69 flights of stairs, 1,311 steps and stands at an elevation of 758 feet. Steve and Coach Clock-head finished in less than 20 minutes and the event raised 1.6 million dollars for the Society. They hope next years Big Climb event surpasses this years, not just with how much money they raised, but with participants as well.
