In Honor of September 11...

We were lucky to be in Florida for an amazing stair climb that took place on September 10. It was to honor the fire fighters who lost their lives on September 11. The stair climb started at 9:11am and we climbed 110 stories in honor of the fire fighters who also climbed 110 stories to help others on September 11 and ultimately lost their lives. It was so amazing, so patriotic and so rewarding. The fire fighters at the charity event climbed in full gear, which is not an easy task, it was like adding an additional 100 pounds. Truly an amazing experience and all proceeds went to the National Fallen Fire Fighters Foundation.
Carson was a trooper and did it with me!

We each climb in honor of a fallen fire fighter which made it much more 
personal and really special.







 We did it!

Tell Carson that I'm proud of him. That is A LOT of stairs! I sure miss seeing him each week.

What an awesome experience! High fives to you both. This will be an experience that Carson will never forget and what a tribute to all those firemen - really cool.
