My name is Darren Fajnor and I’m a Volunteer firefighter with the Taber Fire Department. This is my first year climbing.
The opportunity to compete in this stairclimb was presented to us at a training night at the fire hall from a fellow firefighter who was organizing a team to compete this year. It was a few weeks after joining and registering for the staiclimb that I found out that a fellow worker at the welding shop that I work at discovered that his mother had been diagnosed with lung cancer. I felt compelled to compete in the stairclimb in tribute of her battle with cancer. Her name is Carol Tye – she’s pictured with me.
