Fundraising for a Good Charity | Stair Climb For Leukemia & Lymphoma
I wanted to give a shout out for a great cause.
Do you have a favorite Charity or need to have a few more on your list.
I have one that I donate to every year. It might seem to be a little more personal to me, but it is for a great cause, so I wanted to share.
The Scott FireFighter Stairclimb
|Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The LLS is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. Since the first funding in 1954, LLS has awarded more than $814 million for research specifically targeting leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
If you have ever had a loved one who was diagnosed with cancer, you know the struggles and the research that is involved in the treatments. It can be mind blowing how expensive that can be. But it is needed so badly to help easy the pain and help find ways to reverse the effects, and find a cure or vaccine.
Last year my husband was a Spokesman for my Son’s District after finding cancer cells in his lymph nodes. (Spokane County Fire District #3).
Every year my son participates in a fundraiser for The “Leukemia & Lymphoma Society“. This event is put on by Firefighters from all over the country.
If you have never heard about it, it is quite an event.
Fundraising for a Good Charity | StairClimb For Leukemia & Lymphoma
Each Firefighter puts on full gear including an air pack and carries a hose. All-in-All it weights over 100 pounds or more. Then they race to the top of a building. The one he runs in is 69 floors in Seattle, Wa. That is a total amount of 1,311 stairs. This year he is trying to beat his time of 25 minutes and 3 seconds.
Some climbers can do it in 10 minutes. Can you imagine how fast that is with all that extra weight?
My son will be making the climb with about 1,900 others in this particular event. They do have other climbs all over the country.
I am asking everyone today to DONATE to his cause.
His name is “Brian Mangis, from Spokane Fire District #3”
