EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (WKBN) – Sept. 11: a day to remember our fallen soldiers.
On Sunday morning, Beaver Local Highschool held a memorial stair climb for The Tunnels to Towers foundation.
It’s the third year Glenmoore Volunteer Fire Department has organized the event.
“What we are going to be doing is walking up the stairs 70 times to simulate what it would be like to go up the the towers which is a very important moment for all of us and hopefully we can get through it,” said Kyle Haustman with Glenmoor VFD.
The Tunnels for Towers Foundation is to honor firefighter Stephen Siller, who sacrificed his life to save others on September 11, 2001.
“I’m going to really enjoy this just to see how much we have evolved and came through after these 20-odd years and showing national unity,” said Boy Scout Evan McGown.
A total of 2,996 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks. Sunday, we remember and honor those who lost their lives.
There are other September 11 events happening throughout the Valley.
The Vienna Fire Department held a ceremony Sunday afternoon. They had music from the Mathews High School Band as well as two large beams from the Twin Towers on display.
