The “Base 2 Space” rise in favor of cancer research is back after a two-year hiatus from the pandemic.
SEATTLE – If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to climb the legendary 832 steps to the top of the Space Needle, this is your chance.
The Base 2 Space Climb benefiting the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is back after a two-year hiatus from the pandemic.
The event starts on October 2, but registration opened on Friday.
“It’s great to be back,” said Randy Coté, Space Needle’s director of marketing.
Coté encourages people wishing to attend to register early as the event is very popular.
“On the day of the event, we have signs for people to fill out who they’re climbing for,” Coté said.
For some climbers, the event is personal.
Marcy Grantor has been participating in Base 2 Space for five years.
“I’m doing this event for my brother who we lost to cancer,” said Grantor, who climbed the steps during Friday’s registration launch event.
Over the course of five years, Base 2 Space has raised over $3 million in donations.
Children from the age of 8 are allowed to climb.
