Fighting Cancer With Fire
Dear Friends, Family & Loved Ones,
I want to thank you for visiting my page and considering to donate in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). My own battle with Lymphoma Cancer has caused this annual event to be very dear to my heart. I remember how I felt when I could not climb in 2015 while undergoing chemotherapy treatment and how much I wanted to compete with my brothers and sisters but the generosity you all showed helped to keep the true spirit behind this event for me alive. Since then I continue to receive great support from you all and I hope we can keep striving to raise more in years to come. I also feel fortunate that I will be co-Captain of the “Seattle Fire - Team Tristan” group and will represent the home fire department with my brothers and sisters at the Seattle Fire Department. Please consider making a donation to not only help me achieve my personal fundraising goal, but to benefit patients and their families everywhere.
What is the LLS Firefighter Stairclimb?
69 Flights I 1,356 Steps I 788 Ft. Vertical Elevation
The LLS Firefighter Stairclimb is the world's largest on-air stair climb competition, and annual fundraiser held at the tallest building in town, the Columbia Center. All 2,000 participants are career or volunteer firefighters who will climb up the second tallest skyscraper west of the Mississippi in full turnout gear, weighing over 50 pounds, while on-air. Throughout the 69 flights of stairs, 1,356 steps, and 788 ft. of vertical elevation gain, we all remember that every step forward is representative of moving closer to a cure. Although this is an extreme test of physical endurance, it pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients endure. All proceeds raised directly benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and since its inception in 1991, this event has raised over $17 million thus far.
Thank you for your time, consideration, and sincere generosity. We climb because beating cancer is in our blood. Climb. Conquer. Cure.
Seattle Fire – Team Tristan
