bulletIn the September issue of WL, we reported on Marsha Ralls’s “hike” up Mt. Rainierto raise funds for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Marsha was one ofthe 11 out of 40 climbers attempting the climb to successfully summit the glacialmountain that rises over 14,400 feet above sea level (and, we might add, the onlyfemale member of the group to summit successfully). Marsha attributed her staminato the fact that she is a runner. The fact that she was helping patients with leukemia andlymphoma coupled with the added incentive of sponsors who had agreed to double theirpledges if she made it to the top kept her motivated. Congrats to Marsha on this fantasticfeat. Hiking, anyone?
