This year marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks. No day has greater significance to the fire service than 9/11, when 343 FDNY firefighters died in the line of duty – a single day that forever changed an industry and the world. This 9th Annual Memorial Stair Climb will get under way with opening ceremonies at 9:00am on Saturday, September 11th, 2021.
Co-sponsors, Pierce Manufacturing and the Green Bay Metro Fire Department will host the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb on Saturday, September 11 at Lambeau Field. All event proceeds benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) to assist the families of fallen firefighters and provide resources within the fire service community to reduce firefighter deaths.
The 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb events are a tribute to the 343 firefighters who gave their lives during the tragic events at the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001.
Pierce Manufacturing and the Green Bay Metro Fire Department host the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb annually at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The event is not a timed race and firefighters, their families, and all community members are welcome to participate. Each climber is given a badge with the name and photograph of one of the fallen firefighters to symbolically complete their heroic journey to save others. As one of the largest events of its kind in the nation, nearly 3,000 participants from across the U.S. will ascend the steps of Lambeau Field to climb the equivalent of 110 stories – the height of the fallen World Trade Center towers. Areas for rest and hydration are available throughout the climb.
The event benefits the programs of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to support the families of our nation’s fallen firefighters. Since establishing a partnership with the NFFF, Pierce has helped raised funds to support the NFFF’s mission to develop and expand programs that honor and remember America’s fallen fire heroes and provide resources to assist their families in rebuilding their lives.
