March 16, 2011
This February, 10 Golden Valley firefighters participated in the annual American Lung Association Fight For Air Stair Climb. With 120 other firefighters, they climbed a 30-story building in full gear (about 40 lbs) to help raise money to fight lung disease. This is the fourth year Team Golden Valley participated, raising nearly $10,000 for a third straight fundraising title.
Team Golden Valley included Steve Baker, Ken Bence, Brent Hadoff, Andy Hutson, Bryan Magnuson, Gregg Prest, Ben Vogel, and Steve Yingst. Golden Valley firefighters Jenny Toavs (representing Metropolitan Airport Commission Fire Department) and Matt Preston (representing West Metro Fire Rescue District) also climbed.
