For the sixth year, Wayne Township Volunteer Fire Rescue will participate with a team in the Columbus 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb and Walk. The stair climb is set to happen on Saturday, Sept. 12 at Fortress Obetz, 2015 Recreational Trail in Obetz, Ohio. According to Wayne Township Fire Chief Chris Wysong, participants from all around Ohio and neighboring states come together for this event. “Participants are climbing to honor and remember the 343 FDNY (Fire Department of New York City) firefighters who selflessly gave their lives in 2001 so that others might live,” explained Wysong. “The funds raised will benefit the FDNY Counseling Services Unit, and the programs provided by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) to support the families of our nation’s fallen firefighters.”
