Climb. Conquer. Cure.
Hi Everyone. I will be participating in the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb on Sunday, March 11th in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).This is my sixth year participating in the stairclimb. This event is very gratifiying to know that the event brings hope and blessings to those that are fighting for their very lives. All of us have been touched by cancer. Either a loved one or friend or even ourself. But this event is not just about a bunch of firefighters climbing stairs. It is about us, as a community, coming together for a common goal.Wipe out cancer. How can you help? Please support me with a donation by clicking the donate button. Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers. That is why I participate with the stairclimb. Thank you for visiting my page and your generosity.
What is the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb?
The Scott Firefighter Stairclimb is the world's largest on-air stair climb competition at the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle. We compete in full combat 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.
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, 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 for leukemia and related blood cancers. 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!
