Members of the community are invited to climb the equivalent of 110 stories - the height of the fallen World Trade Center towers - on the steps of Lambeau Field. Each climber is given a badge with the name and photograph of one of the fallen firefighters, to symbolically complete the climb with one of the fallen. At the equivalent of the 78th floor of the World Trade Center towers, which is the highest floor firefighters reached on 9/11, each climber rings the fire bell in honor of the fallen firefighter on their badge. The stair climb is not a timed race and participants can climb to any desired level. An adult or guardian must accompany minors who participate. Pierce hosts the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb annually at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. As we remember America’s fallen fire heroes, all proceeds go to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to provide resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives, and work within the Fire Service Community to reduce firefighter deaths. The stair climb starts and finishes on the northwest end of Lambeau Field. The climb route is one full lap of the Lambeau steps. To ensure a smooth and safe event, climb start times are implemented in waves. Pre-register early! Waves are filled on a first-come first-serve basis. Each wave will consist of 343 climbers.
