WHY WE CLIMB
Each year, approximately 100 Firefighters die while serving their communities. Many more die from cancer, heart disease, neurological disorders, stroke, and other injuries and illnesses suffered as a result of their service. We can work together to honor these sacrifices and care for the Firefighters who assume these risks and the families who share them.
Join this living memorial on September 7th, 2019 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront for the 18th anniversary commemoration of 9/11/01. Firefighters, Police Officers, Military Personnel, and Civilians will join together in a spirit of remembrance and courage to honor the memories of those lost 18 years ago. Teams and individuals will climb 110 flights of stairs, the same number as in the twin towers, wearing the name of a fallen Emergency Responder whose life was lost on that day. We climb in memory, and to honor each of the fallen 343 FDNY, 23 NYPD, and 37 Port Authority heroes, and to raise awareness of the sacrifices made by Firefighters everywhere.
About The SD911MSC
The only event of its kind in the region, the San Diego 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a unique and powerful experience shared by thousands of patriots every year. Annually, hundreds of Firefighters, Public Safety Officers, civilians, and family members gather at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront to honor the memories of the lives lost on September 11, 2001, and to create an experience none of us will ever forget.
Choosing A Hero To Climb In Honor Of
The SD911MSC sells out at 1,300 participants. Each climber selects one of the 403 first responders (343 FDNY, 47 PAPD, 23 NYPD) who died on 9/11 to climb in honor of. For all 403 heroes we use their professional New York safety agency head shot to display on the climber badges. If you wish to use a different photo for your hero we suggest you print it out on your own and bring it with you the day of the climb. You can easily slide your picture into the lanyard and display it. We do not grant requests to change hero's head shots. We appreciate your understanding.
