On March 9, 2014, seven firefighters from Snohomish County Fire District 7 raced up 69 floors of the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The annual Scott Firefighter Stair Climb features firefighters from all over the world as they climb 1,311 steps in full bunker gear.

This year’s climb is especially important to us,” said firefighter and team captain Bill Ekse, who is participating in the event for his 16th year. “We will be leading the way for Colton Matter, a young man in our community we’ve been climbing in honor of since 2010. Two weeks after we complete the firefighter climb, Colton will be participating in the public stair climb.
