BENEFITING: CONCERNS OF POLICE SURVIVORS
EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2015
I am a Dallas 9/11 Memorial 2015 Stairclimb participant. This is only the third year for Police to be represented that were lost, in the line of duty on that horrible day. Funds will benefit families of Police officers lost in the line of duty in TAYLOR county, which is served by the Metroplex chapter.
Fulfilling our promise to “NEVER FORGET,” firefighters and police officers from North Texas and beyond meet to honor the memory and sacrifice of their brothers and sisters who have died in the line of duty. After donning our protective gear and duty equipment, participants climb a total of 110 stories - symbolizing the trek to the top of the former World Trade Center Towers. The Dallas’ Stair Climb is among a growing number of outstanding events held around the world to commemorate the events of September 11th.
