The 9-11 Memorial Stair Climbs are not timed race events, but a way for firefighters and members of the community to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live. Each participant pays tribute to a FDNY firefighter by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Your individual tribute not only remembers the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Through firefighter and community participation we can ensure that each of the 343 firefighters is honored and that the world knows that we will never forget. The proceeds of these events help the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation create and maintain programs that support fire service survivors.

Fallbrook Firefighters have joined a great foundation that raises money to assist the families of fallen firefighters. All across our nation there are 9/11 Memorial Stair climbs organized to remember the sacrifices firefighters made on that fateful day. This is the third year Fallbrook Firefighters will team up with the Fallbrook Land Conservancy to utilize Monserate Mountain’s 1,500 feet of gain to create a 9/11 Memorial Hike.

The hike resembles the type of terrain and vegetation that wild land firefighters endure and the elevation gain simulates the height of the twin towers. Funds raised from the hike are donated to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and the families of fallen Firefighters.

Details:

Each year, approximately 100 firefighters die while serving their communities. Many more die from cancer, heart disease, neurological disorders, stroke, and other injuries and illnesses suffered as a result of their service.

But we can work together to honor these sacrifices and care for the firefighters who assume these risks and the families who share them.

Join this living memorial on September 7th, 2014 at the San Diego Hilton Bayfront for the 13th anniversary commemoration of 9/11. Firefighters, Police Officers, Military Personnel, and Civilians will join together in a spirit of remembrance and courage to honor the memories of those lost 13 years ago.

Teams of Firefighters, Law Enforcement, Military and civilians will climb 110 floors the same number as in the twin towers- and each will climb in the name of a fallen Emergency Responder whose life was lost on that day.

We will climb in the memory, and honor of the 343 FDNY Brothers, 23 NYPD Brothers and Sisters, and 37 Port Authority Brothers and Sisters, and to raise awareness of the sacrifices made by firefighters everywhere.

Funds raised will benefit FirefighterAid (formerly the San Diego Firefighters’ Benevolent Fund,) the 501(c)(3) charity which cares for Firefighters and families through sickness, distress, and death.

Details:

The annual 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a way for firefighters to participate in a special event where we can get together and tell each other and the rest of the world that we will Never Forget. The stair climb was chosen as a venue for two reasons: the first reason is that the FDNY firefighters on 9/11 were forced to climb the stairs to rescue and evacuate people and to reach the fire floors. The second reason is a commitment to firefighter safety through better fitness.

Participants must be firefighters, and should be in top physical condition, as this is an extremely demanding stair climb. Participants are encouraged to wear your full turnouts, SCBA, and carry a piece of equipment used for high-rise fires (ie: 2.5" hose pack or a forcible entry tool). However, you may participate in turnouts without equipment, or wearing gym shorts, tennis shoes, and a t-shirt. Remember: THIS IS NOT A RACE!
For those looking to really test themselves, we will climb the first 55 flights carrying equipment, leave the equipment in the basement, and then go on air for the second 55 flights - to simulate arriving at a fire floor, and going to work.

Firefighter participants will be grouped into companies for safety purposes. Bring plenty of water and/or other drinks, and make sure that you thoroghly hydrate before, during, and after the climb. There will be staggered start times with the first team going shortly after 0900.

We will share in a moment of silence before the stair climb at 0900. After completing the climb, individual teams will celebrate with a bottle of water or Gatorade on the roof. This is also a great photo opportunity for you and your team.

The 3rd annual Clayton Stair Climb will be held Sunday, September 7th, 2014. There will be two climbs available: 10:00am and 1:30pm. The event is open to the public, however the total capacity for the climb will be 343 participants. The morning and afternoon climbs will each have a capacity of approximately 170 climbers. A memorial service will held between the morning and afternoon climbs at 12:15pm.

The Clayton Stair Climb is not a race. It is an event to remember the 343 members of the FDNY that died in the line of duty on 9/11. We climb because they climbed. Each participant will carry the name and photo of an FDNY member during the 110 story climb. It is a challenging and humbling event. Firefighters are encouraged to wear full PPE, SCBA and carry an appropriate hand tool or section of hose. 

During the event, participants will complete their climb as a member of a team. You have the ability to sign up as part of a team during the registration process. Team size should be between 4-7 participants. Groups smaller than four will be combined with other individuals or small groups. Teams larger than seven may be split into smaller teams, however they will climb consecutively and be approximately one minute apart.
 
The registration fee for the event is $30. We are requesting each participant to collect a minimum of $110 in pledges and donations for this year's event. The fundraising aspect of the event is voluntary, but highly encouraged. Last year, every individual that raises at least $500 received one of these fire department speaking trumpets and everyone that raised $55 received a voucher for two free Cardinals tickets for the 2014 season. 

In 2013, the Clayton 9/11 Stair Climb was the 2nd largest stair climb fundraiser in the country for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. We pride ourselves on providing participants with an event to remember and honor the victims of September 11th while simultaneously raising funds to assist the families of fallen brothers.

Proceeds from the stair climb will benefit the Survivor Programs of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) and charities that support Missouri first responders. The event committee is specifically targeting the following NFFF programs: the FDNY Counseling Services Unit and the NFFF Children's Camps.

The climb is designed to equate to 110 stories, the height of the World Trade Center Twin Towers. 

Each participant will begin in the basement level of 1000 Elm Street, Brady Sullivan Plaza, and climb to the 20th floor. Participants will then take an elevator back down to the basement and repeat the process five more times, with a final decent to the 10th floor, climbing back to the 20th level equaling a total of 110 stories. On the final ascent to the top, once completed, there will be an opportunity for team photos to be taken before the team descends for termination activities. These photos will be available for purchase.

Details:

The 5th Annual Nashville 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb will be held on the morning of Sunday, September 14, 2014 at William R. Snodgrass Tennessee Tower in Downtown, Nashville, TN. 343 Firefighters will climb 110 stories in remembrance of the 343 FDNY Firefighters that died 13 years ago at the Twin Towers on 9/11/01.

The stair climb was chosen for two reasons:
1. FDNY Firefighters at the Twin Towers on 9/11/01 had to climb the stairs of the 110 story buildings in order to rescue and evacuate people and to reach the fire floors.
2. A commitment to Firefighter and community safety through physical fitness and training.

The 343 Firefighters participating in the event will be wearing full gear (from 60 to 80 pounds) and climbing for someone specifically. Each climber will be given a badge to wear with the name and photograph of one of the FDNY firefighters killed on 9/11/01.

Participants must be Firefighters, and should be in top physical condition, as this is an extremely demanding stair climb. Participants are encouraged to wear your full turnouts, SCBA, and carry a piece of equipment used for high-rise fires (ie: 2.5" hose pack or a forcible entry tool). However, you may participate in turnouts without equipment, or wearing gym shorts, tennis shoes, and a t-shirt. Remember: THIS IS NOT A RACE!

We will share in a commemorative ceremony prior to the climb on the plaza. Sign-in will begin at 0745 and end at 0830. All Firefighters must check in prior to the 0830 cut-off. The ceremony will commence following registration.

Firefighter participants will be grouped into companies of seven for safety purposes. Each team will climb 28 stories four times to complete 110 stories. The start times will be staggered with the first teams starting shortly after 0900.

Bottled water will be provided but make sure that you thoroughly hydrate before, during, and after the climb.

The Lynchburg 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb will be hosted at the Bank of the James Building, on Main St., on the morning of 9/13/14 as a cooperating effort between the Lynchburg Fire Foundation and the Central Virginia Firefighters Association. 

The event will be a 110-story memorial stair climb and fundraiser to remember the 343 fallen firefighters of the terror attacks on 9/11/01. 100% of the net proceeds from the event will be used to fund the local Lynchburg Fire Foundation and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Both of these organizations rely on not-for-profit funding to provide services to our local community, and to the survivors of fallen firefighters. 



Many of the participants will be First Responders, however, the event is open to anyone. Firefighters may choose to climb in turnout gear, which they will need to provide.

The first annual Lynchburg, Virginia 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a memorial event to remember the fallen heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, as well as fundraiser to support both Local and National charities that honor, serve and protect the men and women of the fire service and survivors of tragedy. 

The stair climb is for anyone who wants to participate. It is organized as a cooperative effort between the Fire Foundation, Inc., of Lynchburg, VA, the Central Virginia Fire Fighters Association, and The National Fallen Fire Fighters Foundation. It is a 110 story climb that will be divided into 5-1/2 heats of climbing the 20 story Bank of the James building on Main Street in downtown Lynchburg. This is not a race. Family and/or team participation is strongly encouraged. For some people this may be an emotional event where they focus on sharing the experience some of the men and women of FDNY had on their final call to duty. It is a moment to remember what these fine heroes went through in their final hours doing whatever it took so that others may have lived. For others, it may simply be a challenge to complete a 110 story climb as a personal goal, similar to completing their first 5K. Either way, 100% of the net proceeds of this event will be used to honor the commitment of the lost fire fighters of New York City both locally and across the nation. 

50% of the net proceeds will go straight to the National Fallen Fire Fighters Foundation to support a psychological and behavioral unit for victims of the World Trade Center attacks which remains a huge necessity for survivors and families of New York City Fire Fighters. The remaining 50% of the net proceeds will be used to sponsor children attending the Central Virginia Burn Camp who are victims of burns or other noticeable physically deforming injuries, and local projects at the Central Virginia Regional Training Center. This camp provides these children an opportunity to feel normal and address their psychological health as a result of the injuries they have sustained from fire and other tragedies. Any remaining funds used on the training center will be used to enhance the training available to local career and volunteer fire fighters with advanced fire behavior training to make our responders safer, more proficient, and more mentally equipped to effect a rescue in dangerous fire conditions. 

These organizations are both registered 501(c)(3) non-profits, and rely heavily on this funding to accomplish their missions. 

We are thankful for your interest in the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb. Please support us with registration in the event, and we appreciate any tax-deductible donations you may provide.

Details:

The 9-11 Memorial Stair Climbs are not timed race events, but a way for firefighters and members of the community to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live. Each participant pays tribute to a FDNY firefighter by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Your individual tribute not only remembers the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Through firefighter and community participation we can ensure that each of the 343 firefighters is honored and that the world knows that we will never forget. The proceeds of these events help the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation create and maintain programs that support fire service survivors.
