About the Event
Raising awareness and support for firefighters and all citizens living with cancer.
This year, the Stairclimb is gearing up to be our most challenging event yet! The 10th annual Firefighter Stairclimb will be held in person at Calgary’s tallest tower, Brookfield Place. At this year’s event, firefighters will get the chance to climb 57 stories and 1,370 steps in modified firefighter gear*, while raising money for Wellspring Alberta.
How it works
This event spotlights firefighters and underscores the risks they take every day when they go to work. It also reflects how Wellspring Alberta’s mission relates to the important work they do. Proceeds from the Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge ensure Wellspring Alberta can provide programs and services to firefighters and all citizens living with cancer. Wellspring Alberta also proudly gifts a portion of event proceeds to support the Firefighters Assistance Charitable Society (FACS).
