Gold's Gym Big Climb team "Be Golden" at the Big Climb event of the Columbia tower in Seattle, WA. Sunday in partnership with Gold's Gym eastside (Bothell, Redmond, and Issaquah), I led a team of gym employees, members, family, and friends up 69 flights of stairs in the tallest tower in the city to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Our team theme, "Be Golden", was inspired by the memory of my dear friend Skip Sand who passed away from a long struggle with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia in October, just a week before my brain surgery.
Visit our team website Be Golden With Gold's Gym to read the wonderful summary my sister wrote describing our team theme and tribute to the life of Skip and our grandfather taken by the blood cancer Myeloma in 2006.
Congratulations to everyone who made it to the top and thank you for helping us to improve the lives of those affected by this disease!
