On Sunday 17th November, three firefighters from Mt Eliza Fire Brigade conquered Australia’s highest stair climb in full firefighting gear to raise money for The Fred Hollows Foundation.
Firefighters Emily, Aaron and Jack climb the Eureka Tower which consists of 88 floors; 285 metres above the ground and a total of 1642 stairs.
It was all three firefighters first time completing the Eureka Stair Climb, or any stair climbing event for that matter. To make things even harder, it was conducted in full structural firefighting gear, which weighs about 25 kilograms.
The total amount raised by all three firefighters was $1968.40.
Congratulations to all firefighters, brigade members and our partner emergency services personnel who conquered the 88 floors of the Eureka Tower!
A special congratulations also goes out to Emily who also won the major fundraising prize of two return Air China Business Class tickets to Beijing.
