Elon, NC -- Fire departments from across the Triad came together in the Annual Firefighter Challenge.
Firefighters suited up and climbed three floors of stairs with a fire hose in hand at the Elon Fire Department Training Tower.
Teens part of Explorer Groups also participated.
It was all in good fun as the groups raised money for the Alamance County Fallen Hero's Memorial.
Last month firefighters held a Memorial ride to raise money for the Memorial.
They hope to have the memorial completed in the coming months.
