Scale the tower’s 832 open-air stairs and take in incredible views of downtown Seattle, Mt. Rainier, and the Puget Sound region’s surrounding beauty as you ascend to the top of Seattle’s most iconic landmark. The fifth annual Base 2 Space was held in 2019; over the five years of the event, it has raised over $3 million. All donations raised benefit Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and the Space Needle Foundation.


Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center is an independent, nonprofit, unified adult cancer care and research center that is clinically integrated with UW Medicine, a world leader in clinical care, research and learning. Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center was created in April 2022 by the merger of longtime partners, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Together, our fully integrated research and clinical care teams seek to discover new cures for the world’s deadliest diseases and make life beyond cancer a reality.
