Climbing for a Cure: On Sunday March 7th, six Okanogan County Fire District 6 (OCFD6) responders joined 1,793 other firefighters from around the world at the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb in Seattle, Washington. This event is a major fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) and their fight against blood cancers. Participants climb 69 floors (1,311 steps) of the Columbia Center in full bunker gear and breathing from a Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). The gear and SCBA weigh approximately 60 pounds. There is an air bottle station on the 40th floor that is strangely similar to a NASCAR pit stop, as the firefighter pulls in and his pit crew changes out his bottle and sends him on his way.

OCFD6 Firefighter Results:
Josh Jankowski 20:05 minutes
Thor Johnson 21:05 minutes
Brian McAuliffe 24:00 minutes

The OCFD6 team would like to thank everyone who helped them raise over $12,000 this year. On race day Josh was #20 on the Top Fundraiser’s List. Donations will still be accepted until March 31st. All proceeds are used by the LLS for research and patient services. To donate, contact Mark Crum at (509) 846-5332.
