SEPTEMBER 11, 2011

With the leadership of Sandra Ignosci, Deerhorn Valley volunteers took part in the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb last weekend on Sept. 3.  Sandra had sponsored eight Rural Fire Fighters and our resident Sheriff in climbing 110 stories (the height of the Twin Towers) in honor of the first responders who lost their lives saving others ten years ago. Some climbed with full gear and apparatus to remember their final sacrifice. Thank you Sandra, for giving us a chance to be part of this memorial. Sandra's late husband, Daniel was a Fire Captain. Her brother, Randy, is a San Diego firefighter who was part of the Twin Towers search & rescue operation following 9-11.  The flag in the background will fly today in New York City at Ground Zero.
More pictures are posted on our Deerhorn Valley Facebook Page.

Firefighters (l-R) Christian Dagostino, Tyler Elmore, Sponsor Sandra Ignosci, Lauren Theil, Gavin Doudna, Anthony Santos, and Nick Rizzo
The climb took place at the 30-story Hilton on San Diego Bay.  Climbers scaled the inner stairs 4 times to complete the full 110 levels.  This is the view from the 30th floor.  Imagine 110 stories.

Resident Sheriff, Enrique Diaz, was among the climbers.
