Spokane Firefighter's Scott Firefighter Stair Climb Events Approaching!
Hey all you news media folks - A special invitation! Come on down to the Bank of America Building (601 W Riverside) and then climb on up some stairs with some firefighters!
February 19th (between 5 and 7 am) Spokane Firefighters will be on hand to lend you a hand climbing a few flights while you're "geared up" in firefighter garb. It should be fun! Just let them know you're interested, so they can bring some appropriately sized gear.
Also, the Spokane Firefighter team is going to be hosting, thanks to the generosity of David's Pizza, a fundraiser on February 20th at David's Pizza (829 E. Boone). The money raised will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
The Scott Firefighter Stair Climb is an annual event to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It's a race up Seattle's 937-foot tall Columbia Center's 69 flights of stairs. 1500 firefighters participate to raise funds to fight deadly blood diseases. This year it will take place March 7th. You can find more information here.
