Hoquiam Fire in Seattle Stair Climb

February 26, 2013

The Hoquiam Fire Department is sending four firefighters to the Firefighter Stair Climb fundraising event in Seattle in March.

President of the local firefighters union Doug Stankavich gave a presentation about the stair climb event that will raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as over 1,500 firefighters will endure all 69 flights, 1311 steps, and 788 feet of the Columbia Center in Seattle which is the tallest building in the city.

Stankavich will be joined by Brandon Ray, Tyler Newport, and Andy Polmateer. This will be Stankavich’s ninth year and Ray’s sixth.

Last year the Firefighter Stair Climb raised 1.2 million dollars, to donate go to firefighterstairclimb.org and search for the Hoquiam Fire Department or there is also a donation box at the Finance Department at The City of Hoquiam.
