Checkout the video below of perhaps one of the easiest firehouse fundraisers to orchestrate. Much respect to the Longview Firefighers as they raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by climbing in full combat gear. What a workout!
The Scott Firefighter Stairclimb is a timed race up the stairs at the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle in full fire gear and SCBA. There are 69 flights of stairs, 1311 steps, and 788ft of vertical elevation. Although it will be challenging, it pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients must go through. All proceeds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
