MILLEDGEVILLE, GA (WTVM) - A Georgia firefighter went to his local gym and exercised his ability to honor those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.
Sunday marked 15 years since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and a first responder went to his Bodyplex location in Milledgeville in honor to participate in the National Stair Climb.
The Facebook post says:
This is the second type of memorial exercise to go viral. A Tennessee firefighter did the same thing at a Maryville, TN Planet Fitness over the weekend.
The walk is for the National Stair Climb, an event organized by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. In the event, firefighters climb or walk the equivalent of the World Trade Center's 110 stories to honor the fallen.
