Stair climbs have become an increasingly popular way to raise awareness and gather support for great causes. Memorial stair climbs pay tribute to fallen first responders. Association climbs are NOT extreme sporting events or fundraising campaigns; instead they are honorable events that pay tribute to the sacrifices of fallen heroes.
The Wichita 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb will take the first 343 registrants (MUST BE ACTIVE OR RETIRED FIREFIGHTERS, CAREER OR VOLUNTEER) to participate in our event. Hosted at the Epic Center in downtown Wichita, KS, climb participants honor the 343 firefighters who were killed on September 11th, 2001 by climbing the equivalent of 110 floors (the height of the former World Trade Center Twin Towers) while carrying the name and picture of one of the fallen.
