Come Climb With Us!
The Salt River Fire Department is hosting their 4th Annual 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb on Sunday, September 8, 2019 at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. The Climb is a way to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters, police, and EMS personnel who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on 9-11-2001.
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. As pictured, participants are given an image of a fallen hero to honor as they climb the stairs at Salt River Fields. 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, 60 police officers, and 10 EMS personnel are honored and that the world knows that we will never forget.
All ages are welcome to participate in the Climb. Your $30 climber registration fee includes a commemorative T-shirt and entrance into the event. Non-climbers are free.
