In tribute to heroes who died on Sept. 11, 2001, firefighters made a strenuous climb of the Town Pavilion stairs Sunday in downtown Kansas City. Seen here catching their breath, the firefighters climbed the equivalent of 110 flights of stairs. To simulate the task of scaling 110 stories, the firefighters ascended 33 flights of the Town Pavilion stairwell three times and then a few flights more to match the height of the fallen World Trade Center towers.
