This is what Sacrifice looks like - The 343!
Next week I will be doing the 2018 Colorado 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at Red Rocks. For those of you that don't know, I was in New York visiting friends and watching the Yankees in the days heading up to 9/11. I used to work for Morgan Stanley in the towers before that act of cowardice happened. In fact I was there, at the towers, on September 10th and had tickets to the Yankees game that night. Roger Clemens was supposed to be the starting pitcher for the Yankees. It rained all day though and the was postponed well before it was to start. Already planning on leaving NY the next day, we decided to fly standby and get home a day earlier. Had the game not been postponed, we would have been stranded there for a bit if we were lucky enough not to have been in lower Manhattan. That being said, I was able to get a flight and got back to Denver around 3:00AM on 9/11 but so many people and first responders including 343 firefighters unfortunately never made it home.
So I would greatly appreciate your help/donation, anything you can spare will help. My goal right now is only $1,000.00 but I hope we can smash that!
More Event Information:
The Colorado 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is not a timed race event, but a way for firefighters and the community to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live.
Each participant pays tribute to a FDNY firefighter by climbing or walking the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Your individual tribute not only remembers the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Through firefighter and community participation we can ensure that each of the 343 firefighters is honored and that the world knows that we will never forget. The proceeds of these events help the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation create and maintain programs that support fire service survivors. Your support of the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb provides assistance to the surviving families and co-workers of the 343 firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001.
