Portland Fire & Rescue firefighters will be competing in the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb on March 7th, 2010 to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Scott Firefighter Stairclimb
The Scott Firefighter Stairclimb is a timed race up the stairs at the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, Washington in full fire gear and Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). There are 69 flights of stairs, 1311 steps, and 788 feet of vertical elevation. Although it will be challenging, it pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients must go through. All proceeds will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
