Join Dawn’s Army and the Big Climb for Leukemia


A troop from The Talon Group will be climbing the Columbia Tower stairwells on March 16, 2008 to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.   

These title and escrow employees of Talon are assembling to be part of Dawn’s Army.  Dawn also works at Talon and was recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. 

Dawn’s Army will be climbing a 69-flight course which features 1,311 steps, 19 steps per flight and 788 feet of vertical elevation.  Whew! 

Back in my title and escrow days, I worked in the Columbia Tower on floors 17 & 18 when it was brand spankin’ new.  I never climbed the stairs!  (I have a weird phobia of stairs, but that’s probably TMI).   

Since I won’t be marching with the Talon troop while they climb the tallest skyscraper in Washington…I’m going to blog about them and hopefully help them raise some funds for the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.   This is a fabulous organization and I did a half-marathon in Vancouver BC a few years ago supporting this cause. 

Please consider contributing to LLS and supporting Dawn’s Army and the fine folks at Talon.   Dawn, a mother of a young son and wife, had no idea this disease was going to strike her.  Let’s do what we can to help!

To donate, click here.  Every amount helps no matter how big or small.  (Gomer Pile is my husband’s alias…when you click the donate link…you’ll understand).

I will be keeping a link in the upper left corner of Mortgage Porter for fundraising until donations have stopped.

Thank you!
