Outdoor Support and Cheer: Long time supporter of the OBN,  Travis DuBois is doing the Seattle Firefighter Stairclimb.

From Travis, “Wearing full turnouts (firefighter gear) and carrying and airpack, we climb 69 flights of stairs for time.  It benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, (LLS).  We raise donations and 100% of them go to LLS.  This is my third year participating.  The first I participated I think around $600,000 was raised, last year $960,000 was raised (so thanks to all of you who donated).  Considering they only allow 1500 participants that is a pretty staggering and exciting number.  Hopefully, with your help, this year we bust a million!”

    Rebecca and Joe! Thanks so much for putting that up there, the climb is a fun event for a good cause and a great avenue for raising money for blood cancer research and treatment. Also, I may not have a blog anymore, but that just gives me more time to read everyone elses! Keep up the good work OBN!
