Climb. Conquer. Cure.

The Templeton Fire Department will be participating in the 29th annual LLS Firefighter Stairclimb on Sunday, March 8, 2020 in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Before we ascend the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, WA, we will be raising funds throughout the season in the name of funding and finding a cure. This year the Templeton Fire Stairclimb Team will be climbing in honor of Stephanie Rothbauer, Braden Waterman in memory of retired Fire Captain Mike Erb, longtime Administrative Secretary Celeste English, Fire Chaplin Richard Burch and little Maddy Gonzalez (Team Maddy) and all others from our community who are fighting cancer. Even though these are not blood cancers this is our way as Firefighters to help find a cure for all cancers. We climb for those who can’t. Please consider making a donation to not only help us achieve our 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. We climb because beating cancer is in our blood.
