This annual event is an ascent of 56 flights of stairs of the Washington Mutual Tower, the second tallest building in Seattle. The reward, besides raising money for CF research, is food, water and beer. Robert has been one of the beer pourers for the past few years and we poured three whole kegs' worth of Red Hook for the 350+ climbers. When the climbing, eating and drinking were done, an event-record $130,000+ had been raised.
The massage tables were busy.

Mmm, beer. Robert and Angie were everybody's best friends for a couple of hours.
