Fire walk raising funds

The firefighters from Manly Volunteer Fire Brigade who are taking part in the Sky Tower Challenge this week took to the streets to raise funds in the lead up to the event.

The team walked 8.5km from Army Bay to Coast Plaza on May 5, and from Coast Plaza to Silverdale Mall on May 12, wearing all the gear they will don for the Sky Tower climb.

Volunteer fire fighter Cameron Macdonald, who organised the two walks, says the walk from Army Bay, pictured, went very well although there were a lot of blisters and sore legs. That walk alone raised $780.

The team was supported by many members of the public along the route.

The Sky Tower Challenge is on Saturday, May 19. Donations can be made at (look for Manly Skywalkers).
