About the event
On May 18 2019, firefighters raced up 1103 stairs of the iconic Sky Tower and raised more than 1.3 million for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand. Every day, 6 New Zealanders are diagnosed with a blood cancer, or one person every four hours. Your generosity & support has culminated in over $7.2 million for the last 15 years to support blood cancer patients in our community. Are you in for the next challenge in 2020?Get Involved
