ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Hundreds of first responders, volunteers, and community members took to the steps at Frontier Field on Saturday as a memorial to those lost during 911.

It was part of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s 911 Memorial Stair Climb. Those involved were given a card with the face of a fallen hero to scan in every time they climbed a flight.

“Once again I am speechless because we have probably 200 people here between volunteers, and people walking and climbing. So, that proves to me as I said before, we have not forgotten,” said Jack Gligora Coordinator, 911 Memorial Stair Climb.

All proceeds go to support the families of fallen firefighters.
