9-11 Memorial Stair Climb
|Thursday, September 11, 2014
Firefighters and members of the community will come together for a day of fitness and reflection in a truly inspiring setting. Together, we will honor those who sacrificed their lives on September 11, 2001, and help support the families who survived them.
Children under the age of 12 who want to participate do not need to register. However, if the child wants a t-shirt, you will need to complete the registration process for them.
What is the memorial stair climb?
The stair climb is an untimed walk aimed at using physical activity to remember the events and people of September 11th. The route is designed to equate to 110 stories, the height of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers. At Red Rocks Amphitheatre the route begins in the upper south parking lot, ascends the south ramp, and takes participants around nine counter-clockwise laps in the amphitheatre.
What are the goals of the event?
The focus of the event will always be remembrance. The mood will be positive as we honor the people and events of September 11th 2001 with each step. Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a most fitting venue for reflection and we encourage all who participate to occasionally pause, take in the surroundings, think of sacrifices that have been made, and see how today we have come together.
Just as our nation came together after 9-11, we need to continue to come together as a community. We as firefighters serve our community daily in providing emergency response. We view this as another opportunity to serve you by providing a means for you to bring your family and friends together.
Donations to 9-11 related charities are in steep decline. Time and distance from the tragedy combined with a poor economy has taxed these organizations. As you can see through the link to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, support is decreasing while the need continues to increase. It is also our goal to establish the memorial stair climb as an annual event to provide continued, consistent support to this charity for years to come.
