Discovery Park of America is having the 9/11 Memorial Climb in collaboration with local firefighters on Sat., Sept. 7. This event is for any firefighter who wishes to participate in climbing the Tower staircase 10 times in remembrance of those 343 firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11.
The 9/11 Memorial Climb will take place on Sept. 7, 2019 at 9 a.m. Guests at Discovery Park that day can watch and encourage the firefighters as they climb the stairs. All firefighters who participate will be wearing their full gear, just as the firefighters did when climbing the 110 flights of stairs of the World Trade Center.
Once the last firefighter has completed the climb, there will be a moment of silence to remember those who lost their lives during 9/11.
