SACRAMENTO, Calif- The Sacramento Area Firefighters held their 5th annual 9/11 Memorial Climb to honor the 343 firefighters from the FDNY that paid the ultimate sacrifice on September 11th, 2001.
Several local firefighters traveled to Sacramento to take part in this year's climb which equaled about 110 flight of stairs.
In honor of the fallen firefighters, the participants wore the name of one of the fallen from FDNY.
To honor this anniversary we are asking all participants to wear full turnouts. The 343 brothers had to climb 110 stories fully dressed and ready to go to work. We will honor their memory by doing the same. All of the proceeds from the event go to benefit the FDNY Widows and Children's Fund.
