Juneau law enforcement to honor those fallen on Sept. 11

Posted: September 5, 2013 - 10:49pm  |  Updated: September 6, 2013 - 12:11am

Saturday at 9 a.m., local firefighters, law enforcement officers and their families will climb 110 stories at the Juneau Federal Building to honor those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Each climber will carry a photograph and biography of one of the 343 New York City firefighters and 60 police officers who died in the attacks, according to a U.S. Coast Guard news release. The 110 stories equates to the World Trade Center’s height.

“The climb is not a race, but an opportunity to honor and remember those who selflessly gave their lives so others may live,” the release stated.

This is Juneau’s third 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb. Proceeds from the event go to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, which helps the families of firefighters who die in the line of duty. Donations can be directed to Robyn Long, 907-723-8847.
