Memorial stair climb remembers fallen heroes

Hundreds spent Saturday morning walking up 110 flights of stairs for “The National Capital Region 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb and Walk”, hosted by the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department.

Organizers say the event is a way to honor and pay tribute to FDNY firefighters who lost their lives, responding to the terrorist attack.

The climb started at 8:46am, the time the first Twin Tower was hit.

Each participant walked the equivalent of 110 stories, the number of floors of the Twin Towers.

The event raised over $50,000 for the National Fallen Firefighters Association.
