MARIETTA - The Marietta Fire Department will host their 2nd annual MFD 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb on Sunday, September 10, 2023 from 9am-12pm at 112 Haynes Street, Marietta, GA. The event will honor the 343 firefighters and all heroes that paid the ultimate sacrifice on 9/11/01. Participants will climb 110 stories in either turnout gear or civilian PT clothes at the 120 Cherokee St. parking deck. This event is open to all first responders and 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, along with a personal silicone wristband and 9/11 remembrance decal. 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!
All participants will be required to sign a waiver at check-in the day of the climb. To register, please visit the website - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2nd-annual-marietta-fire-911-memorial-stair-climb-tickets-401990172427?aff=oddtdtcreator
