APPLETON -- While hundreds of commemoration events were held around the United States today in honor of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001, hundreds of firefighters and members of law enforcement climbing stairs in Appleton in remembrance of the heroes that day.
They spent the evening climbing 22 steps 110 times at Lawrence University's Banta Bowl in full gear. They ascend the exact number of stairs in the World Trade Centers, honoring the first responders who, 12 years ago, gave their all to save as many lives as they could.
