1204 stairs in full gear!!!?? Whose idea WAS this? Oh wait, it was mine.
I am proud to be taking part in the 2021 Virtual Firefighter Stair climb Challenge this May in support of Wellspring Calgary with my favorite four legged friend!
"Spot Me With the Heroes", known as Casey is a year and a half old Dalmatian that is currently training to be a Crisis Response Dog. He has not been able to test yet as everything has been shut down, but when he does certify he will be specifically supporting our fellow first responders. Casey loves snacks, sunshine and bum scratches. He knows how to stop, drop and roll and can lift a leg on a fire hydrant on command ;) Casey loves everyone and lives for a good game of tug-o-war.
We are doing this challenge in honor of my uncle John, whom we lost suddenly in December. It was likely that cancer was the cause but being that everything happened within a matter of days- that was not confirmed. We were very close to him and it was a huge loss that has left a big void for everyone that knew him.
By donating to me, you are helping to make a difference in the lives of many! Proceeds from the event will support Wellspring Calgary, an organization that provides free programs and resources to those impacted by cancer so that no one must face cancer alone. Thank you for helping us make a difference in the life of someone facing cancer! For more information about Wellspring Calgary, visit www.wellspringcalgary.ca.
Wellspring Calgary will gift a portion of the proceeds to the Firefighters Assistance Charitable Society (FACS) whose mission is to empower and strengthen the firefighter by enhancing the success and resilience of the firefighter community.
We have been training hard at the local stairs that have been deemed "Official" and Casey is a great training assistant, cheering us on once he has finished his reps! A huge shout out to Evergreen Park for allowing us to use their facility for this challenge!
