ST MARYS Fire and Res­cue’s Michael McHugh joined 450 fel­low fire­fight­ers in a char­ity climb of the Sydney Eye Tower on Sun­day.

The 450 fire­men each car­ried a 20kg load as they scaled 98 floors to raise money for re­search into mo­tor neu­rone dis­ease.

Last year, the Firies Climb for MND char­ity run raised $180,000. This year it has raised al­most $469,000.

Mr McHugh has hit $3471, smash­ing through his goal of $3000.

“I per­son­ally don’t know any­body who is af­fected by MND, I truly hope it stays that way,” Mr McHugh wrote on his fundrais­ing page.

“I am so grate­ful to be in a po­si­tion of good health to be able to take on the tower climb, I am more than happy to fundraise for a cause I am pas­sion­ate about.”
