JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KDKZ-TV) On Saturday, more than 100 people raised money for fallen firefighters’ survivors by climbing the stairs of the capital city’s Jefferson Building.

The event commemorated the 343 firefighters who died selflessly trying to save others during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

A total of 2,600 steps were climbed in 10 trips to the top of the 13-story building, the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center towers.
