Your Support Fuels Cures

At Fred Hutch, we’re on a mission to save lives and wipe out cancer and related diseases worldwide. But we can only get there with your help. Activating your community to give to Fred Hutch is a meaningful way you can join our quest for cures. Whether you clip in or lace up for Obliteride, scale a mountain peak with Climb to Fight Cancer, donate your birthday to Fred Hutch, or honor a loved one's memory by raising money for research, you play a pivotal role in Fred Hutch's efforts to prevent, detect and treat cancer.



Now in its eighth year, Obliteride has raised nearly $30 million for Fred Hutch's boundary-breaking research.



The average weight of a climber’s backpack summiting Mount Rainier for Climb to Fight Cancer is 35 pounds.



The only way you can climb the 832 stairs to the top of the Seattle Space Needle is by joining Base to Space.



On average, a Fundraise for Fred Hutch event generates $4,000 for cancer research.
