WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — More than 100 people showed up Wednesday morning to the “Climb for Courage” event in Winston-Salem which honored the lives of those who were killed in the September 11th terrorist attacks.

The event was held at Wake Forest University’s Kentner Stadium where participants came together to run 2,977 steps; equal to the number of people who died twelve years ago.

Among those participating were local firefighters and police officers.

“Climb for Courage” was organized in the Triad, but spread to other cities like Los Angeles and Detroit, according to event organizer April Hartsook.
