Climb. Conquer. Cure.
Hey everyone! This will be my 4th year participating in the annual LLS Firefighter Stairclimb at the Columbia Center in Downtown Seattle, WA. This is to support fundraising efforts for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). I'm starting my fundraising little later than usual this year, but plan on breaking new records! Please help me with my efforts to raise money for LLS and consider donating to a great cause!
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, volunteer, or retired firefighters who will climb up the second tallest skyscraper west of the Mississippi in full turnout gear, weighing over 60 pounds, while on-air. Throughout this grueling course, 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 $20 million thus far.
Thank you for your time, consideration, and sincere generosity in this cause worth climbing for.
