NEW YORK CITY, NY - On Sunday March 19, members of the Surf City Volunteer Fire Company, including Surf City Police Ptl. Costabile, completed the third annual NYC Memorial Stair Climb.
These men climbed 72 floors of 4 World Trade Center in their gear in honor of the 343 NYFD firefighters, 23 NYPD officers, and 37 PAPD police officers who were killed on September 11, 2001. The climb is also in memory of all fallen first responders and military personnel worldwide.
The Surf City Police Department posted:
We will never forget those who paid the ultimate sacrifice that day. Good job gentlemen, and know we here in Surf City are proud of you and your accomplishment!
"The New York City Memorial Stair Climb is foremost a memorial climb, however each year we do designate a beneficiary and mount a fundraising campaign for that organization," says the foundation, "the climb also taps into firefighters’ competitive spirit. Climbers have the option to enter as a racer and be timed against other climbers as an individual or part of a team."
