Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: Climb The Needle, Fight Cancer

September 22, 2016

Cancer has touched all of our lives in one way or another. Base 2 Space strives to make the words "you have cancer" a thing of the past. Now THAT is an event everyone can get behind, right?! 

I am SO excited to be climbing the Needle for the SECOND year running (walking, really) and raising funds and awareness for Fred Hutch. KISW has a team again this year, and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have you on it. 

 

Last year, I was SO intimidated by the thought of climbing 52 stories (832 steps). It's the freaking Space Needle!! You've seen it! However, one of the best motivators was the beer garden with live music at the finish line!!! YEAH!! But in all seriousness, people are battling cancer RIGHT NOW. People are fighting for their lives RIGHT NOW. I wasn't going to let my fear get in the way of making this ascent. Cancer's ass needs to be kicked FOR GOOD, and I wanted to be a part of the cure. So I climbed, one foot in front of the other. It was hard, but I did it. And I did it in under 12 minutes! This year, I'm hoping to finish in under 10 minutes. Will you join me?!

 

Help me support Fred Hutch by joining our team, making a donation, or sharing this blog via email or social media. I truly appreciate any support you can provide! It will benefit a great cause.


Thanks so much for your generosity! Rock on!
