For the 3rd year in a row, I will be participating in the Philly Big Climb to raise funds for and awareness of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This year's event will be held at the FMC Tower on Saturday, April 13th. Along with hundreds of others I will make my way up the 1088 stairs.
As many of you know, I am working on a project at Aramark, and the office recently moved to a beautiful new location at 2400 Market Street. From the west side of the building, I look out to the FMC Tower, and have been 'mentally' practicing for the climb!
It is because of my friend, Mary Pennington, team captain 'extraordinaire' that I continue to do this. She is a lymphoma survivor herself, and has become very involved in the local chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She is an inspiration, and makes the climb 'fun' by bringing together an entertaining and enthusiastic group.
Thank you to all of you who have supported me in the past. I invite you to donate once again to this wonderful organization.
I hope to send photos from the top this year (it has rained the previous two). Regardless, you will be with me every step of the way.
Best to all
