Captain DonovanTraining day with other volunteersOn September 18th and 19th, Captain John Donovan of the Venice district joined other volunteers in Boulder, Colorado to participate in the Climbing For Dollars fundraiser for the United Way. During this event $20,000 was raised for the United Way of Manatee County.

While in Boulder, the United Way climbers participated in training sessions with the Colorado Mountain School before scaling nearly 1000 feet of rock face in El Dorado Canyon.
