For the past five years members of the Pittsfield Fire Department and our family and friends have been annually climbing the steps of the 42-floor floor Mellon Financial Center in Boston. We climb to raise awareness and funds for the American Lung Association. It’s a wonderful event called the ALA Race up Boston Place.

The team and I as team captain wish to thank the management and staff of the Crowne Plaza in Pittsfield for letting us train in their stairwell. Preparing for this sometimes arduous race/climb in the county’s largest building has helped us immensely. The staff at the Crowne Plaza has been very accommodating and supportive.
