Volleyball team members helped staff the registration and T-shirt tables and also helped write the names of the fallen first responders on a fire hose carried along with gear by Firefighter Shane Smith Saturday who led the group climbing 1,100 stairs.

Students also distributed ID badges honoring the fallen, which were clipped to those completing the stair climb and the walk.
