Climb. Conquer. Cure.
Its that time again!! To all of those I have reached out to, this is for you! Thank you! This year I am once again taking on the responsibility of doing something greater than myself, raising precious funds for those who really need it. Those who fight the endless battle of Cancer. This is my second year and I have had a small glimpse last year of the amazing donors, firefighters and humans who have answered the cause.
If you are not familiar with this endurance event, you have to see it to believe it. 2000 firefighter participants make the physical trek up 69 flights of stairs with full bunker gear and on air. The pain, dizziness, and exhaustion is momentary, with some of the top competitors finishing in 11minutes, but the experience leaves you in awe feeling accomplished and at the same time, attempting to shoulder the burden of those who endure the real fight for life.
This year I am once again climbing for a close friend, Gabriel Kealoha, who was diagnosed with having Leukemia a few years ago, taking one day at a time. I am also dedicating the climb to Uncle Richard who passed several years ago after fighting cancer for a couple years.
In short, please donate, every little helps even if its a few dollars. Thank you for your time and lets take the fight and help those who really matter.
Hello! I will be participating in the 29th annual LLS Firefighter Stairclimb on Sunday, March 8, 2020 in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Before I ascend the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, WA, I will be raising funds throughout the season in the name of funding and finding a cure. 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, 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.
