Grand Blanc firefighter Ryan Rouse was one of four Grand Blanc Fire Department firefighters who attended and completed the American Lung Association “Fight for Air” stair climb at Comerica Park on Sunday, May 23. Others who participated were firefighter Jeremy Jones, Capt. Pat Murphy and firefighter Brad Wray. Firefighters climbed 2,103 stairs, about ¾ of a mile, weaving up and down the Upper Bowl. The fundraiser generated $354,719, exceeding the $250,000 goal. The American Lung Association uses 88 cents of every dollar for education, research and advocacy.
