Lebanon firefighters got in an early workout in front of a Lebanon Dutch Brothers coffee stand this morning as they prepare for the Seattle Stairclimb, held each year in downtown Seattle to raise awareness and funds for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. A team of 12 firefighters from Lebanon will travel to Seattle on March 12 to climb the 69 story Columbia Tower in full firefighting gear including airpack and mask. The climb is over 788 vertical feet and includes over 1,300 steps. Lebanon has participated in the climb since 2009 and team members say they are honored to make the climb in support of those fighting leukemia and lymphoma. Each team member must raise at least $300 to participate, and fundraising events like todays at Dutch Bros helps to boost that amount even higher. For more information on the Seattle Stairclimb or to make a donation to the Lebanon team, contact the Lebanon Fire District at 541-451-1901.
