National Fallen Firefighters Foundation

 

This is the official National Stair Climb hosted by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2020 OR SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2020

This event is virtual due to COVID-19 restrictions

When firefighters die in the line of duty, the entire fire service and Country grieves. We look for ways to make sure their lives and their sacrifices are honored. We also want to ensure that the families, departments and friends of the fallen find comfort and resources they need to rebuild their lives.

The National Stair Climb is a way to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on 9-11-2001. Each participant pays tribute to an 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 the world knows that we will never forget.

The NFFF Virtual Stair Climb is a voluntary event. You should not participate if you have concerns about your health or safety. Always consult with your physician prior to any new exercise regimen. Your signature on the registration form is your agreement that NFFF is not responsible for any injury you may suffer due to your participation.
