Eight Lynnfield Firefighters climbed over 40 flights of stairs in full turnout gear earlier this month in the name of charity.
Along with first responders from all over Massachusetts, the Lynnfield firefighters 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.
Deputy Chief Glenn Davis, Captain Michael Feinberg, Lieutenant James Alexander, Acting Lieutenant Kevin Mutti, and Firefighters Richard Ripley, Ryan Batchelder, Kathleen Collard and David Feinberg all participated in the event.
The group raised over $4,000 for the charity.
This is the second year the Lynnfield firefighters have participated in the event, said Deputy Chief Davis. The group trained at the Sheraton Colonial in Wakefield, he added.
Feinberg placed highest in the Lynnfield group, finishing 99th in the group of firefighters running in the “Fight For Air” event.
Ryan Thomson, a Portland, Maine 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.
