Climb. Conquer. Cure.
Hello! I will be participating in the LLS Firefighter Stairclimb in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). I will be climbing in honor of Max Jones and Sam Tassos, as well as all others who bravely fight their battles with Cancer. Together we can help find cures, not only for blood cancers but possibly find breakthroughs for other cancers as well. I have multiple family and friends that have some form of cancer and I'm honored to climb for them as well. Please help in any way you can. Thank you in advance for any donation. Jim
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.
