Challenge the Chief
Are you tougher and faster than Calgary Fire Chief Steve Dongworth? Prove it!
Every year, hundreds of firefighters from around the world take part in the Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge, in support of firefighters and community members living with cancer. To change up the challenge and keep everyone safe, the LIVE event will take place at Calgary’s Canada Olympic Park. This event is closed to the public UNLESS you think that you can beat the Chief.
