Hooks and Staches
We will climb to hone the 343 brothers that were killed on September 11, 2001 and the many that have died since then due to 9/11 related illness and cancer. We remember our fallen and we honor them. We will climb 120 stories in full gear with SCBA. Come join our team and if you cannot do the climb please consider making a donation to the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial.
The Columbus 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.
