The Nebraska 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a way to honor and remember the FDNY, NYPD, Port Authority Police (PAPD) and EMS and who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on 9-11-2001. Each participant pays tribute to an FDNY firefighter, NYPD, PAPD and EMS by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Your individual tribute not only remembers the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Through firefighter and community participation we can ensure that each of the 343 firefighters is honored and that the world knows that we will never forget.
The Stair Climb benefits the FDNY CSU, helps cover the costs for FDNY familes to attend Memorial Weekend, and the programs provided by the NFFF to support the families of our nation's fallen firefighters.
