Dallas Police Chief, David Brown joined about 1,000 other people Saturday morning to raise money and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in North Texas' largest stair climb.
For the 6th annual "Big D Climb", people raced up 52 flights of stairs at Fountain Place on Saturday for a total of 1,040 steps.
Chief Brown was the leader of a team of 15 other Chiefs from the Patrol, Investigations, Narcotics, and Strategic Deployment Bureaus as well as the Homeland Security & Tactical Intelligence Division.
The University of North Texas/Denton Police Department also formed a team of officers and chiefs to participate in the stair climb.
The Dallas Police Chiefs join a first responders unit that includes teams of firefighters from Dallas, Prosper, Highland Park, Maybank, and Pilot Point.
The Big D Climb has raised more than $600,000 since its inception in 2008. The money raised goes toward The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkins disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
The goal this year was to raise more than $250,000.
