Win a Massage!

** Contest Ended 9/28/19.

My partner, who climbs Mt. Rainier for fun, signed us up for a competitive wave of the Base 2 Space event on September 29, 2019. If you’re not familiar with it, we’ll be climbing the 832 stairs from the ground to the observation deck of the Space Needle! Being in the competitive wave means I’m aiming to get to the top as fast as I can. (I’m sure he’ll be at the top long before I am!)

This event is a fundraiser for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Space Needle Foundation. I’ve always struggled with fundraisers and asking people to donate even though I only fundraise for organizations I strongly support.


To make this fundraising process more fun, I’ve decided to make it a bit of a contest! Make a donation, guess the amount of time it will take me to complete the “race” and win a 1 hour massage session from me!

How can you win a massage?

  1. Click this link and make a donation of any amount to my fundraising page by Saturday September 28, 2019. You can choose “anonymous” to hide your name from the page.

  2. Comment with the exact amount of time you think it will take me to climb 832 stairs. Be specific with minutes and seconds! The person closest to the exact time wins! One guess per person please. (You may submit your comment below, on my related facebook or instagram posts, or email/text me if you wish to keep it all anonymous.)

Some tips to help you guess how long it will take me:

  • I honestly don’t know how fast (or slow) I will be, but I think a guess in the range of 8 to 13 minutes is reasonable.

  • I hike with elevation, but I don’t climb mountains like my partner

  • I do spin class 3-4 times a week, sometimes 2 in a day, but I’m not “instructor-level fit.”

  • Given a choice, I will always take the stairs over the elevator if it’s less than 7 flights.

The winner will be notified by email or social media private message by 10/1/19. (I will not publicly announce the winner because of HIPAA rules.) The massage will have no cash value and must be scheduled by 12/31/19.
