Stair Climb 2019 NYC

On Saturday May 4th, 2019 members of Silverton Fire Company # 1. Ocean County New Jersey Station 29 will be participating for the 2nd time in the 5th annual New York City Memorial Stair Climb in honor of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to save others on September 11, 2001. This event will see over 400 first responders ascend the 80 floors of 3 World Trade Center. Each climber will be honoring one of the 23 NYPD, 37 PAPD and 343 FDNY killed on September 11th 2001.

The climb also memorializes fallen first responders and military personnel worldwide

Also memorialized in the climb are the hundreds of first responders who tragically continue to die from 9/11 related illnesses.  While all participants climb in full gear, the most important item they carry to the top is an honor tag with the name of a 9/11 first responder who was killed on the day of or who died after due to a 9/11 related illness.

The New York City Memorial Stair Climb designates a beneficiary every year and mounts a fundraising campaign for that organization.  The 2019 climb is proud to support a soldiers journey home: https://www.asoldiersjourneyhome.org/  The climb also taps into firefighters’ competitive spirit. Climbers have the option to enter as a racer and be timed against other climbers as an individual or part of a team.
