We're looking for volunteers to help with support roles in the 5th Annual New York City Memorial Stair Climb. About 120 volunteers are still needed to help with logistics, moving equipment, and even just to stand on a landing and offer motivation to the climbers.
Each year we see 343 firefighter and 60 law enforcement officers climb the 80 floors of 3WTC in full gear. Each climber carries an honor tag representing one of the first responders killed on 9/11. Each year a 9/11 related charity is designated to benefit. This years beneficiary is A Soldier's Journey Home.
We are looking for department members to step up and support this event. It is a fun day and a rewarding experience.
For any members interested in volunteering or for more information, please contact the event director. Also visit www.NYCStairClimb.com
