I received 5 e-mails from Chivers paying tribute to 9-11 by climbing to the 110 floor. These are some sentences from their e-mails:
“On Sept 9th we participated in the Kansas City 9/11 Stairclimb. We climbed 110 floors in full gear to honor the 343 that died that day. We climbed the 110 because the Twin Towers were 110 floors. A total of 343 participated. We wore our FF KCCOs and have our fingers crossed on getting featured on TheChive! Would mean to world to us Chive!”
“Chive, this weekend 343 firefighters from DFW climbed at the 9/11 Memorial Dallas Stair Climb. Each DFW firefighter was given the honor to climb for an individual FDNY firefighter that was killed on 9/11. This was 110 floors, with all of our gear, just as those guys did when they responded to the World Trade Center. There is a picture of the par board with all 343 names on it. We carried our FF’s name tag each step of the way so they were with us the entire trip up. There were a lot of chivers out there representing with us, and I’m sure you’ll have more submission from a lot of people, but these were pictures that I captured with my phone. It was an honor to do this for the families of those fallen, and I thought you guys at The Chive would like to know what us firefighter’s are out there doing. Thanks for all you do, and as always, KCCO.”
“Chive on from the 2012 9/11 from San Diego stair climb 110 stories later and still keepin’ calm”
“Here is a photo of me and brothers and sisters from the 9/11 memorial stair climb”
“Every year Dallas does a stair climb in memory of the firefighters that lost their lives on 9/11. Each firefighter that does the climb carries the name of one of the firefighters, that gave all to help those in need, to the top. The picture with the group photo, that’s some of the guys and gals from Odessa (TX)Fire and Rescue (OFR). Although I may not be one of them yet (as I am in the process of going through fire academy)I know many of the ones pictured personally and to see OFR pay respect to the brothers that lost their lives is very touching. KCCO OFR”
Thank you guys for sending these great photos in.
