Welcome to Jesse's Page
I will climb 69 floors in a grand event to raise funds for the fight against blood cancers. This year the team climb in memory of John Knighten a Spokane Firefighter who died from multiple myeloma in 2013. I also climb for my uncle Mike Cook who died from leukemia. Please contribute to help those who are currently fighting blood cancers and to honor those who have fought blood cancers. We can all make a difference!
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.
