HATTIE STRONG-- FIGHT LIKE THIS LITTLE GIRL!
Who is Hattie?
Hattie Elizabeth Harrison is my spunky 1 year old niece. She loves her mom and dad, cheese puffs, clementines, and music. She's a very happy kid who brings so much joy to everyone she meets.
Why am I doING this?
in July of 2018- Hattie was diagnosed with ALL at just 10 months old. for the next 6 weeks- she and her mom/dad moved into Children's Hospital of Atlanta while she received her first rounds of chemo. Due to her age- doctors have elected to continue fighting this disease with more aggressive chemo. She will be in and out of the hospital for the next couple years.
If there is one thing i've learned about this little girl- she is a WARRIOR who is surrounded by an amazing support system.
Since Hattie is showing us what it means to be a FIGHTER... I figured the least I can do as a firefighter is put my body through hell and fight like her and climb for HER cause.
So I will FIGHT LIKE THIS LITTLE GIRL... 69 Stories. 1356 steps with HATTIE on my shield and near my heart.
WHAT I WILL DO:
69 Flights I 1,356 Steps I 788 Ft. Vertical Elevation
Climb. Conquer. Cure.
I will be participating in the 28th annual LLS Firefighter Stairclimb on Sunday, March 10th 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 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.
