No matter where you live, no matter what your connection to cancer may be, now you can step up to take cancer down by being a part of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Big Virtual Climb.

Every step you take will help fuel the research and care that has made The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society the gold standard of cancer non-profits. While the global pandemic might not allow us to be together to climb to the top of a skyscraper, it can’t stop us from climbing at home or in our neighborhoods. It can’t stop us from becoming a force in the fight against cancer. Big Virtual Climb is your chance to stay fit, connect with others across the nation and lead us to a world free of cancer.

How It Works

We provide all the tools you need to fundraise and train to be ready for the big day, Saturday, June 13. That’s when we’ll all climb the same number of steps that would take us to the top of San Francisco’s iconic Salesforce Tower. 61 stories. 1,762 steps.
Climb your way to reach the top!

We’ll gather for an emotional and uplifting Opening Ceremony before sending you off on your personal climb. And we’ll even provide you with a heart-pumping music playlist complete with motivational messages to keep you climbing toward a cure!

More Info


On June 13, you can climb the 1,762 steps that would take you to the top of San Francisco’s Salesforce Tower in a few different ways.

Climb 1,762 steps in your home, apartment building or even a community park (if allowed by local regulations).

Take 8,810 strides while walking on a treadmill or around your neighborhood (if allowed by local regulations).

Do 600 chair step-ups using any chair to accomplish your climb!

Fundraise Your Way

It is FREE to participate in Big Virtual Climb, but we challenge you to get creative on how you fundraise for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission.

Based on the 61 floors of Salesforce Tower, here are three fundraising ideas to get you started!

Every dollar you raise fuels the best-in-class research and care that LLS delivers to the 1.4 million people in America with blood cancer. And best of all, the dollars you raise will benefit your local LLS Chapter’s efforts to change and save lives in your local communities

The more you raise, the more you’re rewarded.

Train Your Way

Between now and June 13, we want to help you get in the best shape you can be to virtually tackle Salesforce Tower with us. We'll provide you weekly training guides from famous staircases across the country on Facebook so you can be sure to get those legs strong enough to climb, conquer and cure. Just remember to always follow local governmental guidelines on social distancing and where you are permitted to train!
