2019 Grand Rapids 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb

City of Burton Fire Department

The Grand Rapids 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.

Please support the City of Burton Firefighters as they participate in the 2019 9/11 Stair Climb on September 14th at the 5/3rd Ball Park in Grand Rapids to raise money for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.   Any support you can give would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

City of Burton Firefighters
