The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Big D Climb is the largest and tallest stair climb in the Southwest! Over 1,100 participants race up more than 1,500 stairs of the tallest building in Downtown Dallas, Bank of America Tower. AP joined people all across the metroplex and the nation to participate in this unique event. Teams of coworkers, families and friends, compete in a friendly competition to raise the most money for blood cancer research and patient access. More than 1,098 climbers raced in January 2017 and helped to raise $278,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Every day, first responders climb and conquer in pursuit of helping someone in need. It is just part of what they do! It is an honor to participate with first responders from across the nation, partnering with LLS to not only climb and conquer, but to help find a cure.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® (LLS) is the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.

AP participated in the climb on January 26, 2019, trying to reach an overall participant goal of raising more than $350,000.
