Event Recap: 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at Lambeau Field

I was one of 2,169 climbers to complete the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at Lambeau field a few weeks ago. We raised $110,000 for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.

I was able to speak with dozens of other climbers, as well as volunteers from the NFFF and staff from Pierce Manufacturing, before and after the climb.

My experience, the words of many others and lots of pictures are posted at

I climbed for FDNY Firefighter John T. Vigiano II, Ladder 132. I also climbed forĀ Yamel Merino.
