SEATTLE – The Space Needle will host the first public stair climb in the Seattle icon’s history to help benefit cancer research.
The 848-step climb to the observation deck will take place Oct. 3. The event will be open to up to 3,000 people. Participants will pay a registration fee and have to raise a minimum amount in donations.
The donations will go to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, while the registration fees will be used for the Space Needle Foundation.
The 605-foot-tall Space Needle was built for the 1962 World’s Fair.
