I am happy to report that Thursday's Climb for a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis appears to have raised in the neighborhood of $124,000, representing a respectable gain on last year's $95,000.

My company's fundraising team (and our friends and familes) accounted for a very, very modest part of that total, but I must express my thanks to everyone who contributed whether in our team's name or to the event, generally. And if you didn't have the chance in the holiday rush, there is still time--just follow the above link! A gift of any amount would of course be appreciated. :)

Chronic procrastinator that I am, I always seem to make these posts at the last minute:

This year, I'm once again competing in the Washington State Stair Climb for Cystic Fybrosis. (This is the 18th Annual such competition, and my second.) For those who may be unfamiliar with this kind of event, it's essentially a publicity stunt for charity. The focus of the Climb for a Cure, is to raise money to cure cystic fybrosis (C.F.), a life-threatening genetic disease affecting 30,000 people in the United States. The upcoming Stair Climb will take place on Thursday, December 7th.

By signing up as a Stair Climb sponsor (at whatever level you can afford), you can contribute to a cure for C.F.--and, much, much less importantly, support my company's "team," QuorumQuest!

If you'd like to contribute or participate, please see my Stair Climb website for more information.

Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who elected to sponsor my team in the Cystic Fibrosis Climb for a Cure event, last Thursday!  Stair Tactics raised a total of $452 on very short notice (the team was organized less than a week before the event), $132 of which was due to readers of this journal (with a little help from others in my email address book ...).  Overall, the Stair Climb raised more than $118,000 for CF.

And, for the record, our three-person relay team took 8 minutes and 20 seconds to ascend all 56 floors of the Washington Mutual building.  Not in the top ten, but very close!  (We were 11th.)

OK, I realize this is more or less a last-minute appeal, but this is for a good cause:

I've just been recruited to participate in the 17th Annual Washington State Stair Climb for Cystic Fybrosis. If you're not familiar with this sort of thing, it's essentially a publicity stunt for charity. By signing up as a Stair Climb sponsor (at whatever level you can afford), you can contribute to a cure for C.F.--and, less importantly, support my "team," Stair Tactics!
