Lexington firefighters climbed over a hundred flights of stairs today to honor their counterparts that died in the September 11th attacks at the World Trade Center

The community was also invited to be a part of the Saturday morning climb.

Each person carried with them a photo and biography of a firefighter who was lost on September 11th.

It's part of a national event put on by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation which you can read about here.
