Deeds not Words
69 Flights / 1,356 Steps / 788 Ft. Vertical Elevation
Climb. Conquer. Cure
Hello! I'm Chef/ Firefighter Nathan Richard. At 18, I joined the Thibodaux Volunteer Fire Department in my home town, our motto, "DEEDS NOT WORDS," INSPIRED me to participate IN MY first Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Firefighter Stairclimb (LLS). This YEAR will be my 2nd run on Sunday, March 10th. Before I ascend the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, WA, I will be raising funds through out the season in the name of funding A CURE and finding a cure.
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?
The LLS Firefighter Stairclimb is the world's largest on-air stair climb completion, 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.
Thanks in Advance
