Golden Valley Firefighter Prepares to Climb Allianz Field Stairs
A Golden Valley firefighter will be getting quite the leg workout this weekend.
Battalion Chief Ken Bence will be participating in the Fight for Air Climb. It takes place Saturday at Allianz Field in St. Paul.
Bence will climb thousands of steps — 4,380 to be exact, and he’ll do it with 65 pounds of firefighting gear on his back.
The event raises money for the American Lung Association.
It’s a cause especially important to firefighters, who encounter hazardous air on the job.
