Jack Murrin's Firefighter Stairclimb fundraising page
69 Flights I 1,356 Steps I 788 Ft. Vertical Elevation
Climb. Conquer. Cure.
Hello! My name is Jack Murrin, I am an Everett firefighter/paramedic and I be participating in my 16th firefighter stairclimb, which is the 28th annual LLS Firefighter Stairclimb on Sunday, March 10th in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
I’ll be climbing in full fire gear and air tanks in a physically challenging competition that in a small way represents the struggle that blood cancer patients endure. Every step to the top serves as a reminder that there's still much work left to be done in funding and finding cures.
Last year, the Everett Fire Department Stairclimb Team raised the most money all time for this event (of 337 departments and 2000 firefighters participating)!! Please help us continue this tradition.
Please support me and LLS by clicking on the red “Donate Now” button.
Thank you for your support!!!
Again, please consider making a donation to not only help me achieve my personal fundraising goal, but to benefit patients and their families everywhere.
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.
