Yesterday, Saturday, March 7, 2015, recruits from Boston Police Academy Class 54-14 took time out from their studies to participate in the MS Climb to the Top, an event to raise awareness and funds to help the more than 21,000 people in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont affected by multiple sclerosis, a disease of the central nervous system that has no known cause or cure. The recruits relied on their physical training to ascend the 61 flights of stairs to the top of the John Hancock Tower, not only the tallest building in Boston, but the tallest building in New England. Among the other participants were Mr. Douglas Clarke, chairman of the Greater New England Chapter of the MS Society, and our brother fire fighters from various cities around New England.

To our recruits, we say, “Keep up the good work, and keep climbing--calls are always on the top floor!"
