Valley firefighters raise most at tower climb for Leukemia

Snoqualmie firefighters did it again. As part of Local 2878, Snoqualmie firefighters — along with those from Fall City, Duvall and Eastside Fire & Rescue — came in first for department fundraising out of 291 teams in the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb. For three years in a row, Local 2878 firefighters raised more funds than any other team to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, this year raising $39,700.

“A huge thank-you to everyone involved, donors and participants,” said Snoqualmie Firefighter Brian Busby. “I can’t say enough about the generous hearts of our community and the character of our team.”

This year, the event raised more than more than $1.2 million toward the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
