On Sept. 11, 2011 I participated in the 10th Anniversary Memorial Stairclimb here in Spokane, in memory of FF Ronnie Gies, Squad 288. It was a true honor to represent this brave hero, but I was overcome with the desire to do something that would honor each and every one of the 343 brothers who made the ultimate sacrifice. So, on Oct. 21, 2012 I set out on a quest to do 343 memorial climbs before I retire. I typically climb in the morning before going on shift, and the following morning after getting off shift. I climb at least 110 stories, and carry with me the photo badge of a different FDNY brother each day. I have been climbing now for 16 months, and have completed nearly 200 climbs, averaging 146 stories per climb. I expect to finish my quest sometime in the spring of 2015. "Rest in peace"!
