Portland Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge 2023
Sunday, September 24th, 2023
Come test your speed and endurance as you race up the 40 floors and 800 stairs of Portland’s second tallest, and most iconic, building. The US Bancorp Tower, affectionately known as “Big Pink”, will host firefighters, endurance athletes, and casual climbers from around the world for the 2023 CF Climb | Portland Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge.
Firefighter participants will be outfitted in over 70lbs of full "combat gear" to take on the complete "Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge". Endurance Athletes can climb in regular workout attire or take it to the next level as an Ultra Climber and wear a 70lb weighted vest to see how they stack up alongside our first responders. And new this year, anyone ages 10 and up can sprint, jog, or walk their way to the top as a Casual Climber.
Whether climbing to improve timing, test your endurance, or simply cross the finish line, this event is a great way to spend the day with co-workers, friends, or family in support of those living with cystic fibrosis.
In addition, all participants have the opportunity to compete against one another, individually and as a team, to raise necessary funds to ensure those with CF live long, fulfilling lives, and to one day find a cure.
For more information, please call (503) 226-3435 or email Development Director Lindsay Silva at email@example.com.
