My Dad was my biggest supporter when I started out as a firefighter, and remained a big supporter when I started doing stairclimbs and other competitions like Firefit.

He always joked “You’re over 18, I don’t need to be coming to your hockey games anymore”, yet showed up to every stairclimb, firefit, and other volunteer/competition events, and often learned the rules and scouted out the “competition”, providing tips and tricks.

My dad passed away from cancer in October 2022, and this year’s stairclimb feels like the most important one I’ve done so far.

This year I will be climbing for my Dad, Jeff.
