Ryan Pfeiffer's Fundraising Page
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and joining me in commemorating the 343 firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001.
Memorial stairclimbs are an annual tradition in which firefighters don full protective gear, weighing about 70 pounds, and climb the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center - not as a timed race, but as a way to honor and remember fallen fire heroes. The proceeds from the event go to the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation, supporting families devastated by line-of-duty deaths and programs designed to minimize future line of duty deaths.
To learn more about the NFFF and how they use our donatons to change lives, view their 2016 Annual Report at https://www.firehero.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/2016-annual-report.pdf
This event has great personal meaning to me as I stood on top of the World Trade Center’s South Tower just three months before the towers fell. This year marks the 16th anniversary of the attacks, and likely my third and final year participating in the Clayton Stairclimb before the Air Force moves me again. I hope you will join me again this year by climbing, volunteering, or making a tax-deductible donation to honor and remember the 343 heroes who gave their lives so that others may live.
