My CF Climb Story

The Portland Firefighter Stairclimb is a competitive race up 40 floors and 800 steps of the U.S. Bancorp Tower. Firefighters will be outfitted in over 70 lbs. of full "Combat Gear" including Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) commonly used in the line of duty. Racers compete for individual titles in both men and women categories.

In addition, climbers compete to raise funds in the battle against Cystic Fibrosis. Since 2009 thousands of firefighters from across the country and around the world have come to Portland to compete in our event and have raised over $1.5 M in the fight to beat Cystic Fibrosis and make CF stand for "CURE FOUND".

More than 30,000 children in American have CF, an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. In the 1950s, few children with CF lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s, and beyond.

Please support me in my efforts to raise funds and awareness to Cystic Fibrosis.
