Firefighters from across the country set a new fundraising record for the 2017 Firefighter Sky Tower Stair Challenge raising 1.25 million dollars for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand.

Nine hundred firefighters from communities around New Zealand as well as Australia, USA, Chile and Croatia took to the 1,103 steps of Auckland’s iconic Sky Tower wearing 25 kilograms of gear. The 2017 target was set at $900,000 which was achieved four days before the event with the figure landing well beyond the target.
