A Danvers firefighter climbed more than 40 flights of stairs in full turnout gear last weekend in the name of charity.
Along with first responders from all over Massachusetts, Danvers Firefighter Kenneth Reardon climbed the stairs of the BNY Mellon Center on Washington Street in Boston on Saturday as part of the American Lung Association’s annual “Fight For Air” event.
Reardon finished 55th in the group of firefighters running in the “Fight For Air” event.
Danvers residents who are with other departments also participated, including James Koen, a Salem firefighter, Eric Moore, a Cambridge firefighter, and Derek McCrea, a Peabody firefighter.
Ryan Thomson, a Portland, ME firefighter, won the firefighter division; while Andrew Hashway of Somerville, a part of the Gentle Giant Moving Company team, finished first out of all entrants.
