This year marks the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 30th annual “Big Climb.” The philanthropic event requires participants to climb sixty-nine flights of stairs or 1,311 steps to reach the observation deck in Seattle’s Columbia Tower where Freestone’s Seattle office is located. Thirty Freestone team members will attempt this year’s climb to raise awareness for blood cancer research and support the LLS in finding a cure. We have pledged to raise $50,000 and you can follow our progress on the Big Climb website at – www.bigclimb.org. The event takes place on Sunday, March 20th. Let the training begin!
In October, Freestone’s Seattle office partnered with Northwest Harvest to host a food drive providing much needed resources to those in need. According to Northwest Harvest, one in five children in the state of Washington live in a household that struggles to put food on the table. With the help of volunteers and food donations, Northwest Harvest is able to provide these families with nutritious meals and in a manner that respects their dignity. We plan to build on last year’s effort and make this an annual event. To learn more about this great organization, please visit www.northwestharvest.org.
