On March 19th 2017, Over 400 first responders representing the 23 NYPD, 37 PAPD and 343 FDNY will ascend the 72 floors of 4 World Trade Center in the 3rd Annual New York City Memorial Stair Climb. While each first responder will climb in honor of one of the 403 FDNY, NYPD and PAPD killed on September 11th 2001, the climb also will memorialize fallen first responders and military personnel worldwide.
The New York City Memorial Stair Climb is foremost a memorial climb, however each year we do designate a beneficiary and mount a fundraising campaign for that organization.
The Fire Department climbers in the 3rd Annual New York City Memorial Stair Climb will be fundraising for Friends of Firefighters as its 2017 beneficiary. Friends of Firefighters is dedicated to addressing the physical, mental health, and wellness needs of New York City’s firefighters and their families. Our ongoing mission is to provide long-term support and services through confidential counseling, wellness services, and other assistance required by firefighters and their families.
