  • Yokota Tower Run Honors Fallen Heroes of 9/11

    The Yokota Tower Run is designed to honor the fallen heroes of 9/11. Teams of four relay up and down 11 flights of stairs until they reach 110 floors wearing oxygen tanks. While running in a controlled environment in workout clothes will never compare to the extreme environments firefighters regularly have to climb in while wearing full gear, memorials like this go a long way to force a pause in the business of daily life so we can appreciate what others have sacrificed so we can have that life.
