Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and firefighters from around the country have come up with a unique way to commemorate the solemn event, and honor the 343 firefighters and first responders who lost their lives in the World Trade Center.

Every year they hold their annual Stair Climb. 

Firefighters suit up in full gear, heavy coats, helmet & respirator..weighing about 85 pounds, and climb the 111 floors, or 2,200 steps, that the firefighters climbed to reach the top of the World Trade Center. 

There will be a stair climb in San Francisco, and if you’d like to donate or participate, click here.
