Six members of the Templeton Fire and Emergency Services will be participating in the 29th annual Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) Firefighter Stairclimb. It will be the seventh straight year they have participated in the climb.

The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

This year, the Templeton Fire Stairclimb Team will be climbing in honor of Stephanie Rothbauer, Olivia Sartain, Andrea Ingwerson, Fire Chaplin Richard Burch and Maddy Gonzalez (Team Maddy), in memory of retired Fire Captain Mike Erb and longtime Administrative Secretary Celeste English. They are also honoring all others from the community who are fighting cancer.

So far, the team has raised 33% of their $25,000 goal with $8,391.
