10/26/12 109 W - + 4 - 4 Video of Second Annual Charlotte Memorial Stair Climb

Found in this FireCritic posting, here's a recently posted video of the second annual Charlotte Memorial Stair Climb on Saturday, October 13. It was held at the Duke Energy Center Building in Uptown Charlotte. The event honored the 418 firefighters, police officers, and medics that died on September 11, 2001. Planned were a total of 700 climbers, including 343 firefighters, 60 law officers, and 10 EMS personnel. They climbed a total of 110 floors, equal to the number of the height of each Twin Tower. Here's a News 14 story and a photo gallery from the Charlotte Observer. Here's the event's Facebook page and their official photos on Flickr.

This was an excellent, respectful, and well-organized event. The Tunnel to Towers Run was a great addition. Everyone in NC should check it out next year, or perhaps Raleigh/Wake County could organize their own event for those on the eastern side of the state.
