  3. My 9 year old daughter, Piper, climbed for you today 9/10/16 at the largest event of it’s kind in the U.S. today At Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI. She is a fiesty child who knows who the real heros are. She never stopped once and would have done all 110 floors faster if she didn’t have to wait for us. Your memory will live on through her and this day. God Bless.
