Step up for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer NZ in EA Networks Centre challenge

Published: 26 March 2021

People keen to test their endurance climbing 1,103 steps for a worthy cause are being invited to enter themselves or their team into the EA Networks Centre's Firefighter Sky Tower Challenge.

The fundraiser will see participants use the gym's stair climbers to climb the height of Auckland's Sky Tower, raising money for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer NZ.

The national fundraiser is now into its seventeenth year, and sees firefighters from around New Zealand, Australia and the USA compete at Auckland's Sky Tower.

Here in Ashburton, non-firefighters can participate in the EA Networks Centre event either wearing the full 25kg firefighter personal protective equipment, or just wearing usual gym attire.

There will be fire trucks and activities for the kids, a sausage sizzle and a raffle to win a trip to school in a fire truck.

Both EA Networks Centre members and non-members are welcome to participate and entry is free.

The event will be taking place on Saturday 17 April from 8am to 1pm.

Register today by calling the EA Networks Centre on 03 308 4020.
