This year marks the 5th Annual Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge. Hosted by the Calgary Firefighters Benevolent Society and presented by Encana Corporation in support of Wellspring Calgary, event proceeds support firefighters and citizens in our community fighting cancer. Wellspring Calgary is delighted to announce Wellspring will gift a portion of proceeds to the Firefighters Assistance Charitable Society ( (FACS).
Wellspring Calgary provides programs, resources and support to people affected by cancer. Because a prevalent occupational hazard of the firefighter’s job is cancer, Wellspring works to ensure the needs of firefighters are considered alongside the needs of all its community members. Wellspring Calgary is proud to work with the Calgary Fire Department, the Calgary Firefighters Benevolent Society and the Calgary Firefighters Association (IAFF Local 255) in support of those living with cancer including brave members of our firefighting community.
