Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge

From July 20 – 26th, Wellspring Calgary held it’s 6th Annual Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge virtually. The most popular component, Challenge the Chief, was a small live event which took place on Sunday, July 26 at GYMVMT.

This year the Chief of Police, Mark Neufeld, went head-to-head with Fire Chief Steve Dongworth. Donning an additional 65 pounds of gear, Chief Neufeld ultimately finished first, but both were winners for Wellspring.

“Cancer isn’t cancelled. No one knows this better than those who continue to endure treatment and side effects, even as this pandemic sweeps our world. As a cancer support organization, we are doing all we can to deliver on our promise to support and serve those whose lives are turned upside-down by cancer,” said CEO Patti Morris.

Wellspring Calgary provides programs, resources and support to people affected by cancer. Because a prevalent occupational hazard of the firefighter’s job is cancer, Wellspring works to ensure the needs of firefighters are considered alongside the needs of all its community members. Wellspring Calgary is proud to work with the Calgary Fire Department, and the Calgary Firefighters Association (IAFF Local 255) in support of those living with cancer including brave members of our firefighting community.

“Wellspring serves a member base of over 6,700 cancer patients, caregivers and family members, and with no core government or agency funding, we rely primarily on generous donors and events such as this one, to keep us viable,” said Morris.
