Join our friend Marina Rockinger in her CLIMB To Fight Cancer benefiting Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research!
Every year, outdoor enthusiasts join together to ascend some of the world’s most breathtaking mountains in honor or memory of loved ones who have battled cancer. The Climb to Fight Cancer allows you to touch the top of states, countries and continents while raising vital funds and awareness toward finding a cure.
Marina will be climbing Mt. Rainier July 19th - 21st.
Marina's goal is to raise $5,500 and you can support Marina with donations here. And check out her Climb Journal.
"Climb a mountain. Save a life."
Right now, kids like Anna are counting on you.
“Our family was separated after my diagnosis. I was at the hospital, my parents had to take turns staying with me, and my oldest brother was at boot camp,” said wish kid Anna. “I wanted to incorporate something (in my wish) that would bring us all together.”
That’s why Anna wished to visit her brother in Japan, where he was stationed in the Navy. It took 280,000 airline miles to send Anna and her family on an unforgettable wish trip.
You can help!
Right now, nearly 80 percent of local wish kids want to go somewhere for their wishes. These wishes require expensive airline tickets, and we need your help. Donate your airline miles at no cost to you during the Wishes in Flight® mileage drive with Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington on KOMO News, KOMO News Radio, Seattle Refined, STAR 101.5, Talk Radio 570 KVI, and Univision Seattle.
Here’s how you can help:
