SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - More than one thousand people climbed the stairs of the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Saturday for the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb.
Local first responders climbed 30 stories more than three times to commemorate the sacrifice New York City firefighters made during rescues on September 11.
