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.

Crews also say it was important to remember and honor fallen Lexington firefighters.

All of the money raised by the event will be put toward the Fraternal Order of Firefighters Monument to the Fallen.

You can find out more on their website.
