City Hosts Eighth Annual 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb on September 14
The City of Greensboro is hosting its eighth annual 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at 9 am, Saturday, September 14 to honor the multitude of public safety personnel who perished at the World Trade Center. Residents are invited to participate in the event at the Bellemeade Parking Deck, 220 N. Greene St.
Participants have the option of climbing the flights of stairs at the Bellemeade Deck nine times, representing approximately 73 flights of stairs – the equivalent of the highest floor New York Fire Department firefighters reached on 9/11.
“This event has become an incredible way for us to come together as a community to remember those who lost their lives on September 11,” says Greensboro Fire Chief Bobby Nugent. “What started out as a way for us to remember though has grown into an event that is much more than that. Our 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is now a very popular community event, fundraiser, and let’s be honest, it’s a great workout.”
Registration begins at 7:30 am on September 14. Specially designed event t-shirts will be available at the event for $10 along with other merchandise. For more information or to learn how to donate, contact Brent Gerald at 336-430-6041.
