The National Capital Region 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb and 5K walk/run will be on Saturday, September 13, 2014, at the Gaylord National Resort in the National Harbor. The event, sponsored by the Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services, is held in honor of the 343 firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice on 9-11-01.
The first 343 people to register will receive a gift bag containing a Special Edition challenge coin, commemorative shirt designed by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF), and a voucher for lunch inside the Gaylord at the Pienza—“A place where bursting flavors and the overflowing abbondanza (generosity) of the Mediterranean are well represented.” There will also be a 50/50 raffle for cash prize of close to $2,000. The drawing will be at the event, and the winner does not need to be present.
All proceeds from registration and raffle go to benefit the NFFF.
