    Members of the community climbed the stairs of Burnett Plaza in Fort Worth, Texas on Sunday, Sept. 8, 2019 to remember those who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks.

    Three days ahead of the 18th anniversary of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, firefighters, police officers, veterans and other community members climbed the stairs of a Fort Worth office building 2 1/2 times to represent the walk to the top of the Twin Towers.

    The event, called Climb for a Calling, took place at Burnett Plaza on Cherry Street.

    "We promised we would never forget, so that's why we're here," said Susan Allen, director of Climb for a Calling. "We said we would be here, that we would remember and that we will honor them."

    Dallas held its memorial climb Saturday at the Renaissance Tower on Interstate 35.
