The Roanoke 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is back again and this year there are two ways to participate, virtually or in-person. The virtual event can be completed anytime between now and December 31st as participants have the flexibility to participate in a climb or to create their own workout.
The in-person climb will be held at the Salem Red Sox Stadium on Friday, September 11th from 5-7 pm. While the event will be different from years past, this event still gives everyone the opportunity to participate together, safely. The event will be limited to 100 participants. Food and beverages will be available at the ballpark for all participants.
To register for either event go to: http://events.firehero.org/site/TR?fr_id=2182&pg=entry&fbclid=IwAR0BsWApqJ4iAJS36ETE2mdnTMh1hRPHPro3BThnuTAUq9sLbxLxqMVyJ7Y
All proceeds for the event will go to benefit the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation (NFFF).
The Roanoke 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a way to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters, police, and EMS who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on 9-11-2001.
Each participant of the Memorial Stair Climb will pay tribute to an FDNY firefighter, police officer, or EMS 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, 60 police officers, and 10 EMS are honored and that the world knows that we will never forget.
All virtual or in-person participants will receive a t-shirt from the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation at the start of 2021 to commemorate the event. Past Stair Climb T-Shirts will be available at the in-person event as supplies last.
