Climb. Conquer. Cure.
Hello! I will again be participating in the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb on Sunday, March 11th in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
If you can support me with a donation, please do so by clicking the "DONATE NOW"BAR BELOW MY NAME AND ABOVE MY HELMET PICTURE. (This works better than the "Donate" rectangle in the upper right corner.)
Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers. Thank you for your generosity!
What is the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb?
The Scott Firefighter Stairclimb is the world's largest on-air stair climb competition fundraiser at the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, the tallest building in the city. We compete in full firefighting gear weighing close to 50 pounds.There are 69 flights of stairs, 1,356 steps, and 788 ft. of vertical elevation gain. Although it will be challenging, it pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients must go through. All proceeds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Climbers pay all their own expenses to attend and participate. Your contribution will go 100% to the cause of cancer research.
In 2017, this event raised $2.4 million for cancer research. It happens one donation at a time. Please think about what you can do, and who it will help.
What is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society?
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. The mission of LLS is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, as well as spin-off benefits to research on other forms of cancer, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Since its founding in 1949, LLS has invested nearly $1 billion to advance cancer therapies and save lives.
Every day, more than 350 LLS sponsored researchers come closer to the goal of finding a cure. Locally, LLS funds 4 researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and University of Washington Medical Center. Your support and commitment to the mission of LLS enables us to continue this important work of saving lives and aids us in our ability to reach patients in our community.
Thank you for your time and I hope that you will consider donating to this cause! Remember, every dollar counts when someone's life depends on it!
