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 4 years the event has raised almost $5 million due to the incredible efforts of brigades across the country.

The fundraising target for the 2019 event was $1,000,000. With 1000 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
