PHOENIX– The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation will hold one of its 9/11 memorial stair climb events at Salt River Fields later this year.
The event is open to 1,000 members of the public, and it will be held from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Sept. 11.
As a tribute to the New York City Fire Department members who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, participants climb the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center.
Participants will be able to climb the steps of the Salt River Fields stadium in honor of the deaths of FDNY members who were the first responders to the World Trade Center attack.
Funds from the stair climbs assist the NFFF in supporting the families of local fallen firefighters and the FDNY counseling services.
