BASE 2 SPACE
1 memorable climb.
For just the third time in the Space Needle’s 55 year history, the public will have the opportunity to climb the landmark tower’s stairs as part of the 3rd annual Base 2 Space stair climb. Taking one of two intertwining, open-air stairwells, climbers will ascend 832 stairs to the Observation Deck located 520’ above ground. During the climb, participants will be able to look out at downtown Seattle, Elliott Bay, Lake Union and all of the area’s surrounding beauty as the Space Needle’s elevators glide up and down the tower. Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center will receive 100% of all donations raised.
We’re happy to announce that Base 2 Space has reduced its registration fee and fundraising minimum this year. To sign up, each participant will pay a registration fee (an early bird rate of $60 until July 31, and an increase to $75 beginning August 1) and must also raise a minimum of $175 in donations.
As an added incentive, the top ten fundraisers, the fastest male and female climbers, and two additional participants chosen at random will have the opportunity walk around the Space Needle’s Halo, next April. Only a handful of people have walked the Halo since the Space Needle was built in 1962. Participants must be 18 years old or older to qualify for the Halo Walk.
In just two short years, Base 2 Space has raised nearly $1 million for Fred Hutch! Help us reach a new fundraising record this year at Seattle’s Most Iconic Climb!
