OAK HILL, WV (WOAY) – Anytime Fitness challenges its members to climb 110 flights of stairs in memory of 9/11 first responders.
The challenge is inspired by first responders who climbed 110 flights of stairs in an effort to save lives. With the challenge just starting today, Anytime Fitness says several members have already started their memory march and some staff members are joining in.
“For me, I served in Iraq and it really speaks out to me whenever all of our members come together to show their support for first responders or anyone who puts their life on the line on a daily basis,” said staff member Eric Parrish.
For every person that completes the challenge before Sept. 18, Anytime Fitness will donate a free month of membership to a local first responder.
