WTC I-Beam Ride Journey / Karatbars Fire Fighters Card
Fresh off the press!
Karatbars International is proud and honoured to be a sponsor of the WTC I-Beam Ride Journey. The WTC I-Beam Journey was created by the Terry Farrell Fund and in co-operation with the Poudre Fire Authority Fire Fighters. We want to celebrate and honour this journey by tracking Poudre Fire Authority firefighters’ journey from New York back to Fort Collins, Colorado as they deliver a recovered I-Beam from the World Trade Center. This five foot long, 3,500 pound piece of steel was one part of the World Trade Center (WTC) walls, and is one of the last pieces, which is being given to a fire department. This piece of steel will reside with dignity at one of PFA’s fire stations to honour the nearly 3,000 lives lost on September 11, 2001, including the 343 FDNY firefighters. As the PFA members tasked with bringing this artifact across America, updates on their location, how the trip is progressing, and pictures from their journey, will be shared on http://www.karatbarsttff.com !. The team will include four PFA members: Bryan Hanson, Len Lindholm, Jim Salisbury, and Jim Durkin.
These individuals were part of the response from the WTC to help with the recovery in the days and weeks after this tragic event.
Make sure to watch out for the Karatbars Fire Fighters Card which will be available VERY soon!
