13 years. Over $25,000 raised. Thousands of firefighters that I’ve had the great opportunity to climb, fundraise, and compete with for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Surely many would see that as a great accomplishment and lives saves, but sadly the battle for many goes on. Cures have not been found, funding is not where it needs to be, and we still have a lot of work to be done.
As I sit here tonight looking back on many years, many honorees, and memories I am extremely excited and proud to be representing my family, my department, and the Great State of Ohio. Two weekends away is the 2019 LLS Firefighter Stair Climb and the names/stories to these names I will carry forever and make it my work to find CURES!
