Back in January we presented you with a feel-good occasion that will inspire you to make your New Year’s resolution: a challenge to raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ran more than 105 miles in January – it was great.
A new challenge is on the horizon this spring, the Big Climb of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Question: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to fight cancer by committing to climbing 1,311 steps, walking 3 miles, or doing 440 chair steps as part of the Big Climb at home. If you need some motivation to get exercise back into your everyday life, look no further!
As always, it’s free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help fight cancer. We will be organizing another Brit + Co team to strengthen ourselves and I hope you will join us too! Keep scrolling for a look at where I’ll complete the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Have fun climbing!
Never underestimate the power of a responsible person! I asked my in-laws, partner, and a few friends to join me so we could motivate and hold each other accountable to meet the challenge – virtual high fives all around! My dog Fox is also a great climber.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a great motivator for me! I’m lucky enough to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also stay cool indoors with chairs for chairs at home.
Don’t forget to share your social progress – #BigClimb!
Feel free to finish the challenge if you have to complete half the route in the morning and half at sunset. Here I am 1,311 paces later and ready for a break – but think I deserved it!
