The LLS Firefighter Stairclimb is the world’s largest on-air stair climb competition. Open only to career, volunteer, or retired firefighters, this is an exclusive, sell-out event, featuring over 2,000 members of the fire service who must register, commit, and fundraise for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society before ascending the tallest building in Seattle on event day. It takes 69 floors, or 1,356 steps, to reach the highly acclaimed Sky View Observatory with breathtaking views of the entire Puget Sound region. The LLS Firefighter Stairclimb event raises money through individual and team fundraising, sponsorship, and entry fees which is then invested in its mission to fund blood cancer research and support services for patients and their families. In 2019, the Firefighter Stairclimb campaign raised over $2.9 million dollars, and sold out in 14 minutes.
The Fundraising Campaign Manager will be responsible for participant engagement and retention for the LLS Firefighter Stairclimb, with a goal of increasing individual and team fundraising, growing the number of participants and teams, expanding outreach opportunities, strengthening mission connectivity, and enhancing the event experience. They will be expected to take initiative and be a self-starter able to work independently of others yet able to excel in a collaborative environment. They must maintain professionalism, show flexibility, be customer-service oriented, have a strong attention to detail, handle multiple tasks and changing priorities, and remain composed under pressure of deadlines. The Fundraising Campaign Manager must be able to effectively communicate the mission, values, and scope of the institution.
