New Jersey Firefighters Climb Stairs in Gym in Honor of 9/11 Responders

Firefighters climbed the equivalent of 110 flights of stairs at a gym in Norwood, New Jersey, on September 11 to honor the more than 340 firefighters that died while responding to the attacks 20 years ago in New York City.

Dave Paladino, owner of Impact Zone, welcomed first responders to his gym to honor the lives lost in 2001, and posted video showing firefighters in full gear using stair-climbing machines on Saturday afternoon.

“Never forget,” Paladino wrote on Instagram. Credit: @davepfit via Storyful
