69 Flights I 1,356 Steps I 788 Ft. Vertical Elevation
Climb. Conquer. Cure.
It has been just over two years since we lost Amy Lester to Cancer and we will miss her every day. She was a wonderful wife to Rick, a loving mother for William(little boy I’m holding), always had a kind or funny word, she was so strong and so positive. We have all know someone in our lives who was impacted by Cancers; this is your opportunity to fight back! Dig deep and make a donation today for cancer research and family support to the LLS foundation.
March 8th, 2020, I will be climbing the emergency stairs up the center of the tallest building in our State. The Columbia tower is 69 stories, 1,356 steps, I will be in full bunker gear, carrying an SCBA on my back and breathing bottled air the entire time. This is physically and mentally demanding but pales in comparison to our friends fight against cancer.
My mission is to honor your memories by empowering you our friends and family with a common goal. Let’s use this opportunity to grow together, raise funds to help our doctors learn and help cure these cancers. After 6 years as a medic in the Air Force and 12 years as a Firefighter I have had my share of losses but I have broad shoulders and can bare a heavy load. Allow me to carry your wonderful memories to the top of this tower. I will climb for you and we will climb for 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 $20 million thus far.
Thank you for your time, consideration, and sincere generosity in this cause worth climbing for.
