Dedications & Tributes

We’ve heard from people that there are many reasons they are choosing to climb – for a personal life challenge, because someone you know did it, because you lost someone to cancer.  We are also accepting stories about the Fort McMurray 2016 fires – were you there? Want to tell the story of someone who was?

Will you tell us your story? And if  you are climbing in memory or tribute to someone you know, we would like to honour that person too! Fill out the following form OR please send an email with a high resolution jpeg photo of that person (and a separate pic of yourself!) to

When completing the form, please use the following as a guideline:

  • Tell us if you are an active, volunteer or retired firefighter.
  • Have you participated in the Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge before? If so, please share your highlight or a brief account of your experience.
  • What or who is inspiring you to climb this year?

* Send us answers to the above questions in any form you wish… full sentences, point form, or a full written account that we will tweak as needed. Where we are working with points and sentences we will craft your story and send it back to you for editing and final approval before it is uploaded to any platforms.
