  1. Hello, my name is Dawn, and I live in beautiful California. I had the honor of hiking a mountain that is just a little taller than the WTC in memory of Michael, in the 5th annual 9-11 memorial hike. 9-11 has always been a special number for me, but I never thought it would mean so much for so many others too. After getting back home and reading his bio, I was even more proud to have been picked to represent him. I will continue to hike with his tags visible for all to see an American Hero. God bless you and yours.

  2. I had the honor of carrying the badge of Michael C Fiore at the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium this past Friday. This was the first time I have participated in such an event but will not be my last. After reading his bio, it was amazing to see how many lives he had a positive influence on. I will be climbing again next year and will keep this badge and carry it every year I can up those stairs. I climbed because they climbed.

  3. Dear family and friends of Micheal C. Fiore, It was an honor and privilege to carry the badge of your loved one at the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin today. Ringing the bell and saying his name was a moment I will not forget. The badge will be proudly displayed as a reminder of his sacrifice and bravery and will come with me to future events (this was my first). My family and I are forever grateful for what Michael did to protect the people of our amazing country. He sounds like an amazing man who was taken way too soon. As you stated, he truly was there for everyone. I wish I had words to express how climbing for Michael and learning more about him has affected me. God bless your family, you will be in my prayers. I climbed because they climbed. #neverforget
