The Firefighter Sky Tower Stair Challenge is not only a physical and mental challenge. We also challenge you to fundraise as much as possible for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand (LBC). Over the last 3 years the event has raised over $1 million due to the incredible efforts of brigades across the country.
The fundraising target for the 2017 event was $900,000. With 900 firefighters taking part in the event this was a target of $1,000 per firefighter.
What your money can do
Every cent raised for the Firefighter Sky Tower Stair Challenge goes directly towards helping the 6 Kiwis a day that are diagnosed with a blood cancer or related blood condition.
- $35 provides important information for patients including: a patient information pack, a children’s educational book, a disease specific newsletter and DVD
- $50 purchases an emergency assistance voucher for patients to ensure they get to hospital for treatment or can buy food for their families
- $90 provides a counselling session for a patient or grief counselling for a family member of a patient who has passed away
- $120 contributes to the cost of our support group meetings around the country, ensuring patients have access to information about their condition and can meet other patients going through a similar experience
