Firefighter Chris training for Skyscraper Challenge

Here at the St Alban’s Sports Centre, we are delighted to be supporting local Firefighter, Chris Lazenby, with complimentary Fitness Suite membership, as he takes on this year’s Annual New York City Memorial Stair Climb. 

Chris has been training hard and on Sunday 1st July he will be one of more than 400 first responders taking part in the challenge as they ascend the 80 floors of 3 World Trade Center in full kit to raise money for charity.  Chris is a retained firefighter and his role led him to visit New York to meet fellow firefighters affected by the fallout of 9/11 – a visit which inspired him to take part in the challenge.  He will be raising funds for The Ray Pfeifer Foundation, which assists injured and sick firefighters and police officers impacted by the events of 9/11 with medical needs not covered by insurance.
