Over 2,000 firefighters from across the United States and from around the world made the vertical assent in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Each participant committed to raise at least $300.

The goal was to raise $2 million. At this writing the top three fundraising teams are Boise, Everett, and Seattle and the total raised so far is $1,762,625.

The firefighter climb was started by a veteran Shoreline firefighter. See his story here.
