Tucson, Arizona (KGUN) — People across the country remember the 9/11 victims in various ways. Here in Tucson, nearly 2,000 people applied to climb the stairs at the Tucson Convention Center this morning.
“I think it’s important to walk the stairs and connect with that person,” said Barrett Baker, captain of the Tucson Fire Department.
Many other firefighters have joined the baker. Many of them wear all the equipment while climbing. Other first responders also participated in the climb.
“Events like these pay tribute to those who have devoted themselves to protecting the fallen and others,” said Pentagon medic Matthew Rosenberg during the 9/11 attack. .. “It also serves as a way to give the torch to the next generation of people who serve us when we need it and are trying to protect us.”
Community members during and after Tucson have appeared to participate in the mountaineering. Rob Brant, one of the organizers, said the day was about unity.
“People were scared. People were angry,” Brant said. “But we got together and treated each other better.”
Their organizers hope to have another event next year.
