Inspired by the sacrifices made 20 years ago by first responders on September 11, 2001, Workout Anytime in Danville Owner Jerry Pugh is hosting a Memorial Stair Climb and fundraiser this Friday, September 10 at 211 Nor-Dan Drive, Suite 1020 in Danville. Local firefighters and the police, along with the participating community members, will strive for a goal of 2,071 steps — roughly 110 flights of stairs — the same amount of steps in the World Trade Center.
Local firefighters and police will be in attendance and the event is open to the public so anyone wishing to participate can pay their respects to our fallen heroes. In addition to his Danville gym, other locations owned by Pugh are participating as well — such as Daytona Beach, FL, Birmingham, AL, Nashville, TN, Knoxville TN, Chattanooga, TN, Cookeville, TN, Greensboro, NC.
