Climbing for a Cure


On Sunday, March 10th five OCFD6 firefighters joined more than 2,000 others from around the world in climbing Seattle’s Columbia Center, all in an effort to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). This is the largest event of its kind in the world and is limited to firefighters only.
 
Participants climbed 69 floors (1,356 steps, 788 feet of elevation gain) wearing full turnout gear and breathing from a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Imagine climbing the Mill Hill in Twisp while breathing through a straw and wearing 60 pounds of warm clothes.
 
Each climber commits to raising a minimum of $300 by the day of the event. This year our local team of Capt. Josh Jankowski, Thor Johnson, Tiago Pacheco, Zack Gurney, and Div.Chief Brian McAuliffe combined to raise more than $10,000. This year’s event raised almost $3 million for the LLS. The Firefighter Stair Climb began in 1991. Since then, this event has raised over $17 million that LLS uses for patient services and funding of blood cancer research.
