Impact

East Helena and surrounding area.

Project / Needs

East Helena firefighters have taken on the challenge of raising funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in the fight against blood cancers. The department has raised over $20,000 in the past 4 years to support the mission of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This cause hits close to home as it has been shown that firefighters are more likely to develop some form of cancer in their lifetime (63%) versus the general population that are non-firefighters. Along with raising money for this fight, East Helena firefighters will travel to Seattle in March 2018 to race up 69 floors, 1356 steps, 788 vertical feet, of the Columbia Center in full firefighter protective gear. All funds raised by East Helena firefighters will be used by the society to fund research projects to find cures for these horrible cancers and also provide assistance to patients and their families as they fight to beat these cancers. East Helena firefighters will carry photographs of family, friends or community members that are currently fighting, have survived or have succumbed to these blood cancers as we climb in their honor for their fight against Leukemia and Lymphoma.

Other Fundraising

Currently each “Stairclimb” Team member is participating in an online fundraising page, along with other various fundraising events in the community.

How will the funds be used

All funds raised by East Helena firefighters will be used by the society to fund research projects to find cures for these horrible cancers and also provide assistance to patients and their families as they fight to beat these cancers.
