Many of you know that it has been my dream for many years to become a Seattle Firefighter. I have finally made that goal a reality. Now it is my turn to give back. Please check out my page and consider donating even a few dollars. This is my first time participating in this event for a great cause. I will be climbing almost 70 floors at the Columbia Center in Downtown Seattle. I will be wearing full fire gear and air pack while on air as I ascend the stairs in order to raise funds and awareness for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This is something that I plan to participate in every year, so hoping to make the first year a good start!

Climb. Conquer. Cure.
Hello! I will be participating in the 28th annual LLS Firefighter Stairclimb on Sunday, March 10th in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Before I ascend the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, WA, I will be raising funds throughout the season in the name of funding 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 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.
