Four of Drumheller’s finest firefighters are planning to take a step, in fact, 1,204 steps to support firefighters who are battling cancer.
On Sunday, May 7, the team is participating in the Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge, hosted by the Calgary Firefighters Benevolent Society. Its purpose is to provide assistance to firefighters and their families when they are in need.
Mitch, Merv and Kyle Smith, along with Duane Bolin will be participating. This means climbing the 1,204 steps up 775 vertical feet in their entire turnout gear. This is highest stairclimb in the world.
