Dallas Memorial Stair Climb
September 10th, 2016
The annual stair climb honoring the sacrifices of fallen heroes will take on a special significance this year, following the loss of Dallas and DART police officers on July 7.
Fulfilling a promise to "never forget," first responders in North Texas will don their protective gear and climb 110 stories in Dallas' Renaissance Tower to honor the sacrifices of the 343 FDNY firefighters, 70 law enforcement officers, and 9 EMTs who perished at Ground Zero on 9/11.
Each firefighter will be given a badge with a biographical sketch and name of a FDNY firefighter who gave their life on 9/11. The visual image of firefighters climbing a high-rise building in full protective gear will serve as a vivid reminder of the sacrifice, dedication and commitment required of firefighters to protect their communities around world.
