Climb Eagle Landing Park’s Stairs For St. Jude This Saturday
A stair-climbing fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will be taking place this Saturday, Feb. 27th at Eagle Landing Park, located at 14641 25th Ave in Burien.
Eagle Landing Park is known for its 257 stairs, so this should be a good workout for a good cause.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, while located in Memphis, TN, is known worldwide as a renowned pediatric treatment and research facility.
According to their website:
St. Jude researchers are published and cited more often in high impact publications than any other private pediatric oncology research institution in America.Â St. Jude is aÂ place where many doctors send some of their sickest patients and toughest cases. A place where cutting-edge research and revolutionary discoveries happen every day. We’ve built America’s second-largest health-care charity so the science never stops.
Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today’s most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.
Here are the event details:
