Position description:

Join the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as a volunteer at the 2017 Scott Firefighter Stairclimb! For the 26th year in a row, firefighters from all over the world will gather in Seattle to participate in this physically challenging competition. Dressed in 50 pounds of Full Combat Gear, firefighters climb The Columbia Center’s 69 flights of stairs in support of the LLS mission: to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. These fundraisers conquer 1,356 steps and 788 feet of vertical elevation to reach the top, beat their personal best, and fulfill our motto: Climb. Conquer. Cure. You can help us make this year’s event a success by donating your time as a volunteer!
