The highly anticipated 9th annual Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge is just around the corner! Taking place this Sunday, June 11, our biggest fundraising event of the year brings together firefighters, participants, volunteers, and supporters to raise awareness and funds for Wellspring Alberta. This year’s event promises to be our most challenging yet, as we return to a tower and gear up for an incredible day of determination, resilience, and community support. 

The Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge not only showcases the incredible strength and dedication of firefighters but also raises awareness about the heightened risks they face daily in their profession. Firefighters are at an increased risk of developing certain types of cancer due to chronic exposure to heat, toxic smoke, and the byproducts of fire. Through this event, we aim to shed light on these risks and provide crucial support for firefighters and all citizens living with cancer. 

Event details 

This year’s Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge will be held at Brookfield Place, Calgary’s tallest tower, as participants take on an impressive 57 stories and 1,370 steps. Firefighters will come from across Canada, the United States, and Europe to participate in this sold-out event. You can catch all the action through our live stream, with opening ceremonies beginning at 8:15am, ensuring you don’t miss a single moment of this inspiring event. 

Celebrating our participants
