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 in 2023 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront for the 21st 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 19 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.
