Christmas morning, three members of the Templeton Fire Department climbed stairs at Templeton High School football field.
While many in the North County opened presents with their families, or prepared for a Christmas dinner, Captain Brandon Wall, Cade Posner and Madison Harris climbed stairs in full gear at the THS football stadium.
Captain Brandon Wall said he’s training for the Leukemia Lymphoma Stair Climb Event in Seattle in a few weeks, which raises money to fight Cancer and Lymphoma.
The LLS Firefighter Stair Climb will be held March 12, 2023 at the Columbia Center, which is one of the highest buildings west of the Mississippi. More than 2,000 firefighters from the United States and around the world will take part. Captain Wall and five other members of the Templeton Fire Department are participating.
Anyone who would like to donate to fight Leukemia and Lymphoma is encouraged to go to the LLS Firefighter Stair Climb website, or contact the Templeton Fire Department.
In Seattle, firefighters will climb 69 floors in full gear. Captain Wall says, “It’s the least we can do for those who suffer from cancer.”
