With a team roster of over 40 participants, Everett Firefighters will be taking on the 31st annual LLS Firefighter Stairclimb at the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle this Sunday, March 13th, in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

Over the years we’ve covered members of the Everett Fire Department as they raised money “filling the boot” outside of Costco near Silver Lake collecting donations with family members as well as taking pledges on social media.

That money goes to benefit those affected by blood cancers with 100% of all proceeds raised through the Stairclimb directly benefitting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Since its inception in 1991, the LLS Firefighter Stairclimb has raised over $20 million. You can click here to see where the money goes.

Different firefighters with the Everett Fire Department have different reasons for climbing. Some climb for family members lost to cancer, others have lost friends and there are those with a desire to make a difference in the battle against blood cancers.

The Everett Fire Department was the top Stairclimb fundraising team in 2018, 2019 and 2020. Currently they are second place behind the Boise Fire Department. If you’d like to support the Everett Fire Department team you can do so by clicking here to go to the Everett Fire Department team page. and then click on the “DONATE NOW” button or click on an individual name to donate to that firefighter’s goal.

Sunday morning thousands of Firefighters will be climbing the 69 Flights of stairs in the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle. That’s 1,356 steps and 788 Ft. Vertical Elevation. During the climb participants are in full turnout gear, weighing over 60 pounds, while on-air. The team from Everett Fire will start shortly after 8 AM with members set to go at intervals into the early afternoon.

Again, if you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation you still have time. Click here.
