Luke’s History Of The Climb

Since 2017, I’ve combined my passions for biotech journalism and mountaineering.

My Climb to Fight Cancer campaigns for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and Life Science Cares have mobilized the biotech community to give back to good causes. Together, these initiatives have raised more than $5.1 million to fight cancer and poverty.

Let’s talk about climbing and sponsorship opportunities. Email me:
