The climb is a big fundraiser for The Leukemia &Lymphoma Society. Every year, local fire departments send teams to compete against each other and their own times from previous years.

They have to climb 69 stories, or 1,311 steps, in most of their heavy firefighting gear.

In the men’s competition, Everett firefighter Brent Molsberry, 34, placed fourth.

As a team, Everett fire placed 10th.

This year’s event so far has raised nearly $1 million for blood cancer research and patient services.
