9/11 Memorial Climb
- Kaitlyn Bloemer, Bay View Mid
- Community Involvement, Physical Activity Participation, Teamwork
Students walked the equivalent of 78 flights of stairs on our bleachers to recognize the FDNY firefighters who lost their lives in the 9/11 tragedy. They walked up 78 flights of stairs because that is as high as the firefighters made it before the towers collapsed. Each student climbed in remembrance of one firefighter. After they climbed they wrote a message on their wall at firehero.org. The students gained physical activity time, but also climbed to "never forget", which is powerful sense. Most students now were not born at the time of 9/11.
