Fontana High public service cadets will climb exactly 2,200 steps in gear – representing the 110 floors of the World Trade Center towers that New York City first responders climbed – and will raise money through donations made from students, families, staff and community sponsors. All proceeds and donations will go to the McGinnis Scholarship Foundation.
