9/11 Memorial Stair Climbs Retrace Heroic Steps

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

As Americans reflect on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks this year, nearly 50 cities across the U.S. will pay tribute to the New York Firefighters killed at the World Trade Center. They will do so by symbolically retracing their heroic steps in the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb.  Each 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb involves 343 participants – to honor the 343 FDNY firefighters killed in the 9/11 attacks. Some stair climbs take place inside building stairwells, with participants climbing up and down stairs until they reach 110 stories, or 2,200 steps, the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Others occur in outdoor arenas and stadiums. Often, participants wear full firefighter gear and breathing apparatuses while others take part in exercise clothes. 

Soldier Field will host this year’s Chicagoland 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb in Chicago on September 11th.
