I am a volunteer firefighter for the city of Meadow Lake Saskatchewan. I have never participated in the stairclimb challenge before.
I saw the challenge in 2016, but was unable to climb because I was not 18. I decided then that I would participate this year. In the meantime, my uncle Craig was diagnosed with rectal cancer. He has already went through chemo and radiation and underwent surgery. I am climbing to honour his fight and the fight of all those facing cancer. This dreaded disease has affected so many families and I want them to know they are not fighting alone.
Pictured here is my Uncle Craig.
