San Francisco Firefighter Stair Climb

 Trans America Pyramid

July 17th, 2014

Great Climb on Saturday.  We had an energetic crowd who helped us raise funds for great causes this year.  We are looking forward to 2014 and hope everyone will be joining us next summer. We have the results posted, you can follow the link listed on the left side of the page.

This is the inaugural Firefighter Stair Climb for the Bay Area.  Combining Firefighters inherent giving nature with their competitive spirit is a winning combination.  We are pleased to be raising funds for some great causes during this event.  Firefighters are on the front lines of devastating burn injuries that befall people at critical times.  We have selected 3 causes that work together in treatment and recovery of major burned victims.
