Stair Climbing Fundraiser Celebrates First Decade




The Big D Climb to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) will take place January 27 at the Bank of America Plaza in downtown Dallas for its biggest event yet. More than 2,000 climbers, including hundreds of first-responders, are expected to race to the 70th floor to raise money and awareness to fund blood cancer research. This year’s goal is $350,000.

Teams are forming now as all registered participants will receive a weekly training schedule to assist in their preparation for the climb. All climbers receive a long-sleeve T-shirt, timing chip and access to the exclusive post-climb party outside the building, with music, a beer garden, food and interactive booths.

The Big D Climb has raised more than $1.3 million since its inception in 2008. The money raised goes towards the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkins disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
