BENEFITING: NATIONAL FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS FOUNDATION
On September 11th 2001, hundreds of New York's Bravest and Finest responded to the attacks on the Twin Towers and raced up the 110 story structures in order to perform the largest rescue and high-rise firefighting operation to date.
The climb provides participants (active duty police and fire) unique insight into the physical challenges faced by NYC firefighters and police officers on 9/11. Witnessing the event provides spectators (family, friends and the general public) both an inspiring experience and intense reminder of the sacrifice, dedication and commitment required of public servants to protect their communities around the world.
A Symbolic Tribute
The Dallas 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is NOT A RACE, but rather a tribute honoring the sacrifices of fallen heroes. Our event features numerous symbolic elements that pay homage to the public safety community as well as the events of September 11th.
Throughout the climb, symbolic elements are placed within a timeline that mimics the events of that fateful day. Participants are given a biographical sketch and accountability tag of a NYC firefighter or police officer who gave their life on September 11th.
