Carson City Firefighters raise a pile of loot to combat blood cancer – competing in Seattle high-rise stair climbing challenge!
A small army of Carson City Firefighters, their wives, kids and others raised a sizeable sum of money from donations they received from passing motorists as they drove by McFadden Square downtown on Carson Street this past weekend. It was an annual event to raise money to help fight cancers like Leukemia and Lymphoma.
Firefighters set up stair-climbing machines (on steroids) outside the Fox Brewpub as part of their training and equipment, inside a downtown high-rise in Seattle in competition with many other fire departments joining them in their fight against cancer. It’s an annual event held in many parts of the country as firefighters not only give their all to protect lives and property, but also to give cancer-struck
children a chance to live a full rich life. If you missed their fundraiser downtown on Saturday, please be on the lookout for firefighters encouraging local Carson City residents to donate to the cause. They’ll be out fundraising right up to the time of their departure for the world’s largest annual firefighter stair-climb competition in Seattle March 8th.
Please donate what you can. Our Carson City Firefighters consistently give their all everyday to save and protect lives under very hazardous, if not dangerous conditions. Any donation amount will be gladly received to help defeat cancer.
Those who would like to donate to the cause, go on line at Carson.org/stairclimb and get all the information.
