The inaugural New Orleans 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb will be held on the morning of September 10, 2016, at 400 Poydras Tower from 7am until noon. We will pay tribute to the 343 firefighters, 70 law enforcement officers, and 9 EMTs that made the ultimate sacrifice 15 years ago. Climbers will ascend 110 floors wearing full gear and bearing the name of one of our fallen brothers. Family, friends, and spectators are invited to attend this memorial event. It will be an inspiring experience and intense reminder of the sacrifice, dedication, and commitment required of those who serve and protect our communities.
Registered climbers will ascend 110 floors, the height of the former World Trade Center Twin Towers. Each climber will bear the name of a first responder that perished at Ground Zero. Participating firefighters are encouraged to wear full firefighter gear during the climb.
Local Jefferson Parish and New Orleans firefighters and police have already committed to the inaugural New Orleans climb, and more are needed to register. Registration for climbers is open to active firefighters, law enforcement officers, EMS and military. Event volunteers are also needed and open to anyone ages 18 and up. Climbers and volunteers can register at www.neworleansstairclimb.com and we encourage you to be in that number!
Proceeds from the event go toward the Louisiana Heroes Project, a non-profit organization that proudly supports Louisiana military, veterans, wounded, first responders and their families. The New Orleans 9/11 Stair Climb is a sanctioned event of the Association of Memorial Stair Climbs, a 501(c)3 organization. Visit www.memorialstairclimbs.com to learn more.
