Seattle CF Climb 2018


About CF Climb

Step it up for CF Thursday evening, November 15 at 1201 Third Avenue in Seattle for our 30th Annual CF StairClimb! The StairClimb is a 56 Floor vertical challenge - each floor you conquer brings us one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis.

After climbing your way to the top, you take the freight elevator down to where the festivities begin. The Happy Landings Party will await you in the Atrium with great food and drinks provided by BJ's Restaurant & Brewery, Cascade Ice and more! Relax and get a massage, too! You earned it. All participants will receive a StairClimb t-shirt after the climb.

Individual and Team Climb:
Climb all 56 floors in a competitive stairwell. You will be given an individual and a team climb time (teams of 5 individual climbers or more). Individual times will be ranked in overall, gender and age group categories. A team score will be given by adding the top five times together for a best average. Each climber is responsible for meeting the fundraising minimum.

3-Person Relay: Three individuals divide the 56 floors, each climbing 19 floors. The first leg of the relay begins at the start line, the second leg on the 19th floor and the third leg on the 38th floor. The times of each climber will be added together for a final climb time. Relays begin at 5:45pm SHARP. Second and third legs will need to be in the stairwell by 5:30pm. There is no late start for relay teams.  Each climber is responsible for meeting the fundraising minimum.

Special thanks to our Event Chairs Jim Kraft and Paul Swegle. The CF Foundation appreciates all of their hard work and dedication. Campaign for a Cure and the StairClimb would not be as successful without their support.

The StairClimb is dedicated to the memory of Jennifer Lynn Thanem, June 22, 1984 - August 6, 1999. For 10 years, she served as the Cystic Fibrosis Ambassador for the StairClimb. We miss her cheers and her smiling face.
