Climb. Conquer. Cure.
Friends and family,
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.
This year, I will be climbing in honor of Chet Wolfe, who passed away after a battle with cancer on February 1st, 2019. Chet was a kind person and a great uncle to my mother. He was also a Navy veteran. I will be carrying a picture of Chet on my fire helmet during the climb.
My personal goal is also to beat my personal record, which is 16:02 (sixteen minutes, two seconds). I will be filming the climb on my gopro. If you donate, you might just be blessed with film of me suffering through 16 or 17 minutes of pure suck.
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 donation.
