San Francisco firefighter Greg Collaco is back to raise awareness for the America Lung Association. Each year, the association holds a “vertical road race” up 52 floors of San Francisco’s tallest “climbable” building.
This year, Collaco will captain the FNDY 343 Tribute team. Each member of the team will climb the skyscraper, wearing the name and photograph of one of the 343 firefighters who died on 9/11.
“Whenever I think of 9/11, I have an image of the firefighters in the high rises, so the stair climb for me is synonymous with firefighters in a stairwell,” Collaco said in David Leipman’s San Francisco Examiner report. Collaco will be doing the climb twice – once with gear, the other without. “People will have to dig deep. I’ll remind them that they’re doing it for the firefighters who died and to let their families know that we haven’t forgotten,” Collaco said.
Bauer’s Transportation will be looking to provide Transportation for this event as well as unique raffle prizes at the event.
