Recently a number of employees and volunteers participated in the Scott Stair Climb at the Columbia Tower in Seattle. An annual benefit for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, firefighters compete against other teams, their own team members and attempt to improve their personal best time climbing over 1,500 stairs wearing 40 lb. self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and full bunker gear.

This year’s team was comprised of Andy Johnson, who reached his personal best at 16 minutes, 4 seconds; Darren Lenz and Ross Copland (placing 1, 2nd and 3rd respectively for the VIFR team); Mike Kirk, who placed best of his age group at 73 years and fourth place for the team; Cory Wallace, Adam Joyner, Josh Munger, Stephen Bussell, Matt McCann, Drew Larson and Wes Paulsen. Overall the VIFR team placed 42nd of 190 teams from across the state and country, a respectable finish.

Kayla Adams also participated by changing out air bottles, which also takes place during the climb. By soliciting donations from family and friends, the VIFR team also raised $7,831 but donations will still be accepted until March 31st. You can donate by going to
