|Beginning at 8 a.m. TOMORROW (Saturday, May 16), a team of Houston police officers will compete against other squads in scaling 39 floors of the Marathon Oil Tower in uptown Houston in an effort to raise funds for the American Lung Association and its “Fight for Air” Stair Climb.|
Members of the HPD team named “Houston Cops – SWAT Team” have volunteered to participate and have devoted several hours of stair-climbing training exercises to prepare for the competition. Hundreds of participants, including a team from the Houston Fire Department, are not only climbing stairwells to cross the finish line in the fastest time, but in many cases doing so to honor or remember those affected by lung disease.
