2008 Big Climb Award Ceremony

Over 1500 firefighters and 5000 civilians climbed to the top of the Columbia Tower this year and raised an amazing $1.5 million plus for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am honored to have been witness and official photographer for their annual awards ceremony this year. Held at the Columbia Tower Club we got to meet courageous firefighters as well as those fighting to cure Leukemia whether it be for themselves, a loved one, a friend or just because.

One of my favorite people was 83 year old Anders Jacobsen whose time to the top was a mere 21:19! I’m lucky if I can walk around the block in 20 minutes. He is pictured here with his son who came to celebrate with him.

And of course, we all had spectacular views….
