(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)— St. Joseph fireman Jeff Werner wasn't able to make it to the regional climb in Kansas City Tuesday in honor of first responders who died in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, but that didn't stop him from paying tribute. 

In a Facebook post, Planet Fitness employee Bill Lane said Werner put on his 60 lbs. of firefighting gear and climbed 110 flights on a stairmaster Tuesday morning to honor the victims lost on 9/11.
