They're collecting donations for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and getting in shape for the Scott Stair Climb - "The world's largest stair climb competition"

The event will be held on March 11, 2018.

In 2017, the event featured 2,000 firefighters from over 330 different departments and 9 different countries.

This group of climbers brought in a record $2.4 million for blood cancer research and patient services.

The event is open only to firefighters who must compete in full structural turnout gear. 

The event is consistently sold out. 

Each participant must raise $300.

Teams like Shoreline combine their fundraising goals and work joint events to collect donations. With seven members, their team goal is $2100 minimum.
