American Lung Association’s Fight For Air Stair Climb

On Saturday March 23rd, members of the HHFD traveled to Philadelphia to participate in the American Lung Association's Fight For Air Stair Climb. This annual event raises money for awareness and research for lung disease. This is the fourth year that the HHFD has been represented at this event.

This year 18 members signed up for the challenge of climbing 50 flights of stairs wearing firefighting gear, some even with SCBA. This was an excellent physical fitness training exercise to help keep us in shape for the strenuous requirements of firefighting.

The HHFD Stair climb team raised $2700 to go towards the over $160,000 raised at the event. Congratulations to all that completed the 1,088 steps and made it to the top.
