Step off those holiday treats at The 2014 Big D Climb for LLS

WHAT?  The Big D Climb is the biggest stair climb in North Texas. Participants race up 52 flights of stairs (1,040 steps) to raise money for blood cancer research and patient services. More than 1,250 climbers raced in January 2013 and helped to raise $200,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. January 25, 2014 will mark the event's 6th year at Fountain Place in Downtown Dallas, and our goal is to have more than 1,350 climbers raise more than $225,000. Can we do it? Absolutely! The Big D Climb has the best climbers with the biggest hearts. See you at the top!

WHO?  You! If you don't want to try it alone, form a team and challenge your friends, family and co-workers to race you to the top of Fountain Place. Simply click on the link "create a team" on the registration page to climb for a cure together. Racers must be at least 7 years old or able to climb independently. For safety reason, children are not able to be carried.  

WHEN?  Saturday, January 25, 2014. It's a great way to kick off your New Year's Resolution to lose weight, go to the gym, try new things, get more involved, help a worthy charity....you name it!

WHERE?  The breath-taking Fountain Place in Downtown Dallas. The address is 1445 Ross Avenue.

WHY? To find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Funds raised through the Big D Climb go directly to support research, patient aid, patient services, education, and advocacy.
