On Sept. 11-12, firefighters and civilians from all over will be joining the Springfield Memorial Stair Climb virtually to remember those lost on Sept. 11, 2001.
As the coronavirus has swept the country, the organization has made the decision to hold the event virtually this year.
“We invite the entire community to join us virtually and participate in the Eighth Annual Springfield Area Memorial Stair Climb,” said Julie Mercer, marketing coordinator. “The Memorial Stair Climb is a virtual commemorative climb to honor the 343 members of the Fire Department of New York who died on Sept. 11, 2001.”
Registered participants are encouraged to virtually climb, walk, run, or bike a total of 110 stories, representing the number of floors in the Twin Towers.
