Shoreline firefighters at Central Market Saturday to raise money for Tower Climb

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

On Saturday March 1, Shoreline Firefighters will be "climbing" non-stop at Central Market -- just a preview for the upcoming Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Annual Scott Firefighter Tower Climb on March 9.

69 flights in full gear
At 788 feet of vertical elevation, the Columbia Center (formerly Bank of America Tower) in downtown Seattle stands as the second tallest building west of the Mississippi. It takes 69 flights of stairs and 1,311 steps to reach the highly acclaimed observation deck overlooking the city.

The Scott Firefighter Stairclimb supports the mission of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, raising money through sponsorships, individual and department fundraising, and entry fees. In 2013, the event featured 1,500 firefighters from 282 different departments and brought in a record $1.44 million for blood-cancer research and patient services.

Scott Tower Climb participants will be raising money in Shoreline from 8:30am to 3:30pm at the entrance to Central Market. Watch them keep those stepmills going non-stop! Meet and greet our firefighters and donate to the cause.  

Donate online to Shoreline Fire - use the Donate button in the right hand column - or better yet, go cheer on our firefighters at Central Market on Saturday and donate in person.
