For the past three years on Sept. 11, Sgt. Charles Grubbs with the Harrisonburg Police Department has walked up 110 floors in honor of the first responders who climbed that many steps in the World Trade Center 18 years ago to rescue civilians trapped as a result of the terrorist attack. While he does this via the stair climber at Sentara RMH Wellness Center, the message is clear, to remember the individuals who died trying to save lives. “I do it every year because it’s important to never forget,” the 16-year HPD officer said. Knowing that it’s not only important to remember those who have died in the line of duty in the past, a group of Harrisonburg High School students wanted to recognize the first responders who are doing it every day still.
