Help Stop Cancer!!
I hate asking people for money. I really do. I am not thrilled when other people ask me for money. So why would I feel good about asking other people if I hate asking for it? I don't. But I do know that this is a good cause. I know that there are men and women and boys and girls of all ages affected by these awful blood cancers and need help each and every day. As a responder that comes in contact with these affected individuals on a regular basis, I can attest to the need for continued research and support towards stopping this horrific sickness. So for one time this year, I am asking you to please consider donating your money to help find a cure and benefit patients and families everywhere.
Climb. Conquer. 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 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 time, consideration, and sincere generosity. We climb because beating cancer is in our blood.
