Hello! I will be participating in the LLS Firefighter Stairclimb in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) for the last time as I am preparing to retire from the fire service. This will be the 7th and final year of me coming to my friends and family to support this incredible cause. In the past 6 years of climbing I have been able to raise $64729.97 all thanks to the friends, family and the incredible citizens of the City of Richland! I would love to finish strong and hit a 7 year total of $75,000.00! That sets my goal for this year at $10270.03! This will be my last ask for this event as I am planning on retiring before the next climb. Please consider helping me out to achieve my goal!
As this is my final climb, I will be supported by an incredible friend and mentor, Fire Chief Grant Baynes (retired). Grant will be climbing along side me, or more than most likely in front of me, and carrying my gear back down the tower as I did for him in 2015, all in memory of my Father Captain Charlie Bryan who passed in October 2002. We will be out at various locations in Richland collecting donations, please come out and see us or hit the DONATE NOW button to the right.
Thank you all for your continued support to this remarkable cause! Find a cure!!!!
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 $22 million thus far.
Thank you for your time, consideration, and sincere generosity in this cause worth climbing for.
