10 Days to GO!!!
69 Flights I 1,356 Steps I 788 Ft. Vertical Elevation
Climb. Conquer. Cure.
Hello! This weekend I will be participating in the 28th annual LLS Firefighter Stairclimb on Sunday, March 10th in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). I volunteered to step in for someone from our department who had to drop out. That leaves just a few short weeks to fundraise for this fantastic charity! Every year, a couple thousand firefighters come together to raise funds to help fund research, better treatments and someday 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 & fundraiser held at the tallest building in Seattle, 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, twenty minutes of hard work pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients endure every single day. All proceeds raised directly benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Since its inception in 1991, this event has raised over $17 million.
Thank you for your time, consideration, and sincere generosity. We climb because beating cancer is in our blood.
