September 11 Memorial Sky Tower Climb

Sep 15, 2019 | College News

Last week, in memory of the firefighters who lost their lives in the September 11 bombing of the Twin Towers in New York, and also in memory of the 59 New Zealand firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty, over 200 New Zealand firefighters (including Wentworth’s own caretaker and volunteer fireman, Nick Pelikani) climbed the Auckland Sky Tower. Fully kitted out in 25kg worth of gear (including oxygen cylinders), the firefighters climbed 1,103 stairs with Mr Pelikani achieving this feat in just 18 minutes. Mr Pelikani has expressed his thanks to all the Wentworth students for the fantastic fund-raising event organised by McDonald House last week in support of this challenging climb.  Our students raised money through bake sales, the Sky Tower Coin Trail Challenge and mufti day.
