Base 2 Space
For the first time in the Space Needle's 53 year history, the public has the opportunity to climb the tower's 832 stairs as a part of Base 2 Space: Seattle's Most Iconic Climb. Open to runners and walkers over the age of 14, climbers will start at gound level and will ascend one of two open-air stairways, which provide 360° views all the way to the Observation Deck 520' above ground. Each climber will pay a $100 registration fee and must also raise a minimum of $250 in donations. Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center will receive 100% of all donations raised. For more information or to register, visit Base2SpaceSeattle.com.
If you can't participate or attend, but would still like to support, then please consider donating to Team KOMO and help us beat cancer!
