LLS Firefighter Stairclimb

Seattle Fire- Team Tristan Smith


Climb. Conquer. Cure.

Hello! The Seattle Fire – Team Tristan Smith will be participating in the 28th annual LLS Firefighter Stairclimb on Sunday, March 10th in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and in remembrance of our fallen brother Tristan who we lost to non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in April of 2016.  We are dedicated to follow in his spirit of “keeping the awesomeness going”.  We pride ourselves on being the #1 fund raising team with over $675,000 raised over the years and hope you will join us in accomplishing our goal for 2019.  Before we ascend the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, WA, we 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 our 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 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 consideration and sincere generosity. We climb because beating cancer is in our blood.
