LLS Firefighter Stairclimb

The Firefighter Stairclimb welcomes firefighters representing hundreds of fire departments from around the globe with one goal in mind - to raise millions of dollars in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission to provide funding for research and to find cures for blood related cancers. Ultimately, this community-based, voluntary health organization is the voice for all blood cancer patients providing care options, treatment services, and education to improve their quality of life and provide support for their families.

The Firefighter Stairclimb, held annually since 1991, challenges each participant to climb the 69 flights of stairs (1,356 steps) to the renowned observation deck of the iconic Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, Washington in full firefighting gear including breathing apparatus.
