Brandon Wall to participate in ‘Scott Firefighter Stairclimb’
Stairclimb benefits Leukemia & Lymphoma research
Templeton Fire Captain & Training Coordinator Brandon Wall will participate in the 23rd Annual Scott Firefighter Stairclimb on March 9 to help benefit Leukemia & Lymphoma research by climbing to the top of one of the tallest buildings in the west.
The event is a timed race up the stairs of the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle in full fire gear with SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus). The Columbia Center is the second tallest building west of the Mississippi. It stands at 788 feet high and has 69 flights of stairs with 1,311 steps to reach the observation deck overlooking the city at the top of the building.
“The climb pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients must go through,” said Wall. “I’m doing this in honor of my Uncle Bob Thompson who has been diagnosed with stage-four brain cancer and this is my way of helping to find a cure for ALL CANCERS.”
