Welcome to Team Luke’s Big Climb Philly fundraising page! Luke McIlwain was diagnosed with pre-B ALL Leukemia on 9/20/2017.  Luke, along with his parents Jenny and Adam, his brother Tommy, and his Uncle Nick from WMMR’s Preston & Steve Show together form Team Luke. 

On May 19th, Team Luke will be leading the climb up 46 floors to the top of Philly’s FMC Tower at Cira Centre South in support of the LLS mission: cure blood cancers and improve quality of life of patients and their families. 

Make a difference today by registering to join Team Luke or making a charitable donation. Every little bit counts. Luke and his family greatly appreciate your support, encouragement, and generosity.


Luke is an inspiring little boy. Team Luke's contributions will help others who suffer from these diseases. Please be generous.
