Jason Harding is a firefighter near Knoxville, Tennessee.

He went to a Planet Fitness gym and asked if he could climb 110 flights on the Stairmaster in FULL firefighting gear, to honor the firefighterw who ran up 110 flights at the World Trade Center on September 11th.

Naturally, he was given the okay.  He donned all his gear, and hopped on.

The takeaway for me, was he did this from the heart.  The gym was almost empty.  He wasn't making a statement or a public spectacle.  He did it on his own accord, to honor the first responders who lost their life that day.

Thank you for your service to the community, Jason.  You've made so many proud!
