This fall, fire service members convene in high-rise buildings across the United States to climb 110 stories as a tribute to their fallen brothers. Some use air pack or carry hoses; many are in full turn-out gear; others are accompanied by rescue dogs. Each climber carries the photograph and biographical sketch of a firefighter who was lost on September 11, 2001.
Several climbs have been modified to enable civilians to participate, and are generally held in outdoor venues. For both types of event, the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb is not a race, but an opportunity to honor and remember the 343 FDNY members who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live.
The Prince George's County Maryland Chapter will conduct their 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb and walk on Saturday, September 8, 2012. The event will be held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, 201 Waterfront Street, National Harbor.
