It is that time of year again - planning is well underway for the 2017 National Capital Region (NCR) 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb, hosted by the Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department. The event, to benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2017, at the Gaylord National Resort and Conference Center at National Harbor.
You can register NOW to participate in the stair climb or the 5k walk at http://events.firehero.org/pgcounty . It will only take a couple minutes to register. Make it a family event or form a department or station team! Last year we had over 600 participants.
In addition to needing climb/walk registrants, we are in search of sponsors. If you are able to sponsor a floor, make a sponsorship commitment, or know of a company or person willing to do the same - see the attached sponsorship letter.
I encourage everyone to register and consider becoming a sponsor - assistance finding sponsorships would be greatly appreciated. Any questions should be addressed to Assistant Fire Chief Krichbaum.
