On Sunday September 7, 2014, fire service members from across the Southern Tier will convene at the Binghamton State Office Building on Hawley Street downtown to climb 110 stories as a tribute to their fallen brothers who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Some climbers will use air pack or carry hoses; many will wear full gear. Others will be accompanied by rescue dogs.

The 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb is not a race, but rather an opportunity to honor and remember the 343 FDNY members who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live.

The 4th annual Binghamton 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb is sponsored by the Binghamton Fire Department and the climb is seven times from the 3rd floor to the 18th and then an additional five more stories for a total of 110.

Those who participate in the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb not only remember the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Through the stair climb, participants ensure that each of the 343 firefighters is honored and that the world knows that they will never be forgotten.

The proceeds of the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb helps the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation create and maintain programs that support fire service survivors.

Registration starts at 9am followed by opening ceremony at 9:45am and then the stair climb from 10am-12pm. Participants can park at the Government Plaza and Hawley Street parking ramps.

You can learn more about how you can honor the memory of those who lost their lives that fateful day through donation or by participating in the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb here.
