9/11 Stair Climbs

The 9/11 Memorial Stair Climbs are not timed race events, but a way for firefighters and 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 or walking 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. Your support of the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb events provides assistance to the surviving families and co-workers of the 343 firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001.

Can’t Make it to a Climb Event? Be a Climb Supporter!

You can be a Climb Supporter for any of our stair climb events by registering as “Climb Support” for that event. This is a great way to support a buddy who is climbing or complete the climb on your own in recognition of our fallen brothers. As a climb supporter, you will receive an honorary name badge and event t-shirt. Visit one of our climb registrations sites for details.
