9-11 Stair Climb at Salt River Fields
The Salt River Indian Community Fire Department will be hosting the 6th Annual 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick on September 10, 2022 to honor and remember the fallen firefighters on the anniversary of 9/11. The National Fallen Firefighters 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is not a timed race event, but a way to honor the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY) firefighters, police and EMS who selflessly gave their lives on September 11, 2001.
Each participant pays tribute to an FDNY firefighter, police officer, or EMS by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Each climber will be issued a tag with the name and picture of one of the fallen to carry throughout the climb, symbolically completing their journey to the top of the World Trade Center Towers. Through firefighter and community participation, we hope to ensure that each of the 343 firefighters, 60 police officers, and 10 EMS personnel are honored, and their sacrifice is never forgotten.
