People across the country will remember 9/11 and the victims that were killed at the World Trade Center that day in 2001.
In Montgomery, the Pike Road Volunteer Fire Department hosted their annual 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb. Teams of firefighters climb 22 flights of stairs at the RSA Tower 5 times during the event. It represents the 110 story World Trade Center.
People from the public also participated in the event, each of them carrying flags and a name of a first responder killed on 9/11.
“People take their time. It is done to honor and to remember. People were affected by nine-eleven and it is done to filter that,” says coordinator Dana Grubbs.
Participating required a $30 registration fee. Funds from the memorial go to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
