Health Care workers climbing stairs to honor 9/11 victims and firefighters
Rio Grande Valley first responders are pledging to climb stairs to resemble the more than 100 stories climbed by New York Firefighters during 9/11.
About 20 medical staff from Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen held a ceremony on Friday to honor the fallen victims and heroes, before they started their climb.
Jennifer Barnesky-Smith, a chief strategy officer for Valley Baptist System said they wanted to make time to honor the ones who lost their lives — despite the pandemic.
“it’s particularly humbling to see our community come together once again to remember such an important day in our nation's history and I think the weather today is kind of telling as well that we all grief as we remember this day,” Barnesky-Smith said.
