2011 fight for air climb orlando ~ event photographer
I was able to take part in a very important and extremely inspiring event this morning. The American Lung Association held its 2011 Fight For Air Climb in downtown Orlando. Teams from around the area donated such a tremendous amount of money, and they also climbed 25 flights of stairs in record time. Also firefighters from around the Central Florida area participated in the Firefighter Challenge. Teams of firefighters competed for the title of the fastest fire department. Firefighters climbed in full gear (mask, boots, tank, etc.). That was really special to see. And there were so many amazing people I met today – that was even more special. I’ll remember the smiling faces and determination everyone showed as they climbed up the Bank of America building, in honor or in memory of loved ones.
