On March 19th 2017, 343 firefighters in full firefighting gear will ascend the 72 floors of 4 World Trade Center in the 3rd Annual New York City Firefighter Stair Climb. While each firefighter will climb in honor of one of the 343 FDNY firefighters killed on September 11th 2001, the climb also will memorialize fallen first responders and military personnel worldwide.
The 2017 memorial climb will see the addition of 60 law enforcement officers climbing to honor the 37 PAPD and 23 NYPD officers killed on September 11th, 2001.
The New York City Firefighter Stair Climb is foremost a memorial climb, however each year we do designate a beneficiary and mount a fundraising campaign for that organization. The climb also taps into firefighters’ competitive spirit. Climbers have the option to enter as a racer and be timed against other climbers as an individual or part of a team
