The San Antonio 110 9/11 Memorial Climb will once again be taking place on September 11th, 2018 at the Tower of the Americas. First Responders from all across the country join together to pay tribute to their fallen brethren of 9/11. This event was created to pay tribute to the 343 firefighters who went to the WTC towers and perished on September 11th, 2001. Firefighters will climb the TOA stairwell twice to reach and actually exceed the 110 floors of the WTC buildings. Participants will complete the climb that their fallen brethren was not able to. This is why we climb. All 343 fallen firefighters of 9/11 will be paid tribute to. We will also pay tribute to the 70 fallen Law Enforcement Officers and 9 EMS personnel as well. A limited amount of public civilians will participate as well. We have over 50 different agencies participate in this event each year.
Funds first and foremost go to our tribute for our fallen on 9/11. Each year SA110 chooses a new beneficiary as well to donate to should there be remaining funds as well. This year we have chosen two equal beneficiaries: Rise Above Hardship and Warrior Fitness.

*Crowdrise is our additional fundraising site for participants and supporters to fundraise for our event and cause. Top fundraisers will receive a shout out for their efforts and a thank you package mailed to them after the event. Thank you for your support!
*Please note: Fundraisers and donation receipts may state from The Bernie Grace Foundation. This is because BGF is the 501(c)3 which hosts the San Antonio 110 9/11 Memorial Climb. Sites like active and crowdrise require our actual 501c3 name to collect funds. All funds go directly into SA110 9/11 bank accounts.
