The event commemorates the 17-year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks while also honoring the brave, selfless men and women first responders who protect us every day. This 5K competitive run/fun walk features Galena’s iconic Green Street staircase as the defining, and most challenging portion. At last year’s event, firefighters from departments from four states climbed those stairs – a poignant reminder of the incredible bravery first responders demonstrated as they scaled the twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001.
