Team Big Bear Fire Annual Climb-A-Thon

2016 Climb A Thon

 

Team Big Bear Fire takes the fight to cancer with a marathon climb in the Village of Big Bear Lake. The team will be holding a Climb-A-Thon event in the Village at Pine Knot Ave. & Village Dr., on Sunday, March 5, 2017 at 9 a.m. This event kick-starts their annual fundraising campaign to fight blood cancers. Show your community support and see how hard these firefighters work as they climb the “stair-stepper” machine in full gear for eight solid hours to support this worthy cause.

The Climb-A-Thon is a prelude to prepare firefighters for the near herculean task of climbing 788 vertical feet, in the “Scott Firefighter Stairclimb” in Seattle, Washington on March 12, 2017. Team Big Bear Fire will compete for the 9th straight year, testing their endurance to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Firefighters will climb 69 flights of stairs in Seattle’s tallest building, the Columbia Center Tower, dressed in full gear, including self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).

Every dollar counts when someone’s life depends on it. Team Big Bear Fire invites the community to help in the battle against blood cancers by donating to their team. Donations can also be made on the team page at www.llswa.org. Click on “Scott Firefighter Stairclimb” and donate to Team “Big Bear Fire.”
