Saturday, September 22nd over 150 firefighters from 5 states are coming to Missouri State University- Plaster Stadium to remember those lost on Sept. 11, 2001.
The sixth annual Springfield area stair climb starts at 8 am at Missouri State University- Plaster Stadium. Firefighters and the general public will participate in the National Fallen Firefighters (NFFF) 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb, a commemorative climb to honor the 343 members of the Fire Department of New York who died on September 11, 2001. We invite you to join us; I promise you it is a very moving experience.
Over 300 participants will climb the stairs of Plaster Stadium at Missouri State University multiple times for a total of 110 stories, representing the number of floors in the Twin Towers. As part of registration the participants are asked to raise other funds for the NFFF. To date, registered climbers have raised over $9500 for the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation. All registration fees will be directed to the NFFF to assist the surviving families and coworkers of those firefighters killed on September 11, 2001.
