25th Annual StairClimb

Event Overview


Thursday, December 5, 2013: STAIRCLIMB
Location: Tower at 1201 3rd Avenue, downtown Seattle
Stair Climb


The StairClimb is a 56 Floor vertical challenge - each floor you conquer brings us one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis, the nation’s number one life-threatening genetic disease. After climbing your way to the top, you take the freight elevator down to where the festivities begin. The Happy Landings Party will await you in the Atrium with great food, drinks and massage.

Special thanks to our Event Chairs, Jim Kraft of Plum Creek and Paul Swegle of
Kinsel Law Office for the time that they so generously give.

Because of risks to people with cystic fibrosis (CF), only one person with CF may be invited. Also, individuals who have ever had a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) complex shall not attend any Foundation events/meetings. These requirements are because CF germs can be passed between individuals who have CF. Some germs in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may lead to death. CF germs are not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals.
Despite this policy, individuals with CF might choose to attend events or meetings without informing the CF Foundation or without the Foundation’s knowledge. If so, they do so at their own risk. The Foundation accepts no responsibility for any risk to health involved in attendance, or in any social contact between persons with CF. For more information, please visit

Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event.  For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.

Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
