Thank you for taking the time and viewing my page. This will be an emotional year for me, my 6th year climbing the Columbia tower, but my first year since being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I know without a doubt that if you follow the link below and donate you will be helping save lives because research and new treatments is what saved my life. Before I was born the same lymphoma that I was diagnosed with in March 2021, took my Aunt Jane to soon away from our family. So I’m walking proof that dollars raised for research between back then and now has us winning more battles against cancer. Based on that evidence if we raise more money we can save even more lives in the future. 100% of the money donated goes to cancer research and patient care, so please consider making a donation. This year I’ll be climbing in memory of my Aunt Jane, Kathy Kuettner, and for my Uncle Keith and for all of the patients in the waiting rooms I met along the way.
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.
