On Sunday, October 22nd, first responders taking part will use the stairs at the Lethbridge Centre Tower to climb up and down which is the equivalent of the 110 stories of the former World Trade Centre in New York City.
The Lethbridge Memorial 9-11 Stair Climb is taking place in a couple of weeks. The climb honours the 343 firefighters and 70 law enforcement members who died in the World Trade Centre in New York on September 11th. Mark Matheson with the Lethbridge Fire Department says the climb will take place this year on Sunday, October 22nd. On that day, firefighters, police, EMS, and military will retrace the ascent and decent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Centre by completing ten laps at the Lethbridge Centre Tower. All money raised this year goes to the Tema Conter Memorial Trust, a national charity to support first responders and military in prevention and treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD.
