MARIETTA - The Marietta Fire Department is hosting the Inaugural MFD 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb to honor the 343 firefighters that paid the ultimate sacrifice on 9/11/01. Participants will climb 110 stories in either turnout gear or civilian PT clothes at the Cobb County Government's 120 Cherokee St. parking deck. This event is open to anyone who wishes to climb!
All proceeds from this event will go the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and to the Marietta Firefighter Support Fund. Not a big climber? You can still register to donate to these non-profit organizations.
All climbers will receive a lanyard with a picture of a fallen FDNY member from that day to carry with them as they climb and a personal silicone wristband. The #MFD hopes to continue to honor and never forget these brave souls and their families.
Select local restaurants on the Marietta Square have graciously offered their support with discounted meals/tabs for those who show their ticket and registration after the event, so be sure to stick around for food and fellowship post climb! See you there, rain or shine! All participants will be required to sign a waiver at check-in the day of the climb.
Register online for the event.
