2019 Columbus, Ohio 9-11 Stair Climb

The 24-7 COMMITMENT team in Columbus, Ohio is honored to be hosting the Columbus 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb.

The Columbus 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a way to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters, police, and EMS who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on 9-11-2001. Each participant pays tribute to an FDNY firefighter, police officer, or EMS by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Your individual tribute not only remembers the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Through firefighter and community participation we can ensure that each of the 343 firefighters, 60 police officers, and 10 EMS are honored and that the world knows that we will never forget.


The Stair Climb benefits the FDNY CSU, helps defray the costs to send FDNY families to Memorial Weekend and helps fund the programs provided by the NFFF to support the families of our nation’s fallen firefighters.

  • Q.Can anyone climb?

    A.Yes!  The stair climb is open to anyone and is family friendly.  Children who participate should be able to climb on their own.   We generally see the youngest ages around 8 – 10 years old.

  • Q.What do we wear?

    A.Dress like you’re going to a work out.   Some firefighters who participate will wear turn out gear and SCBA’s to honor the fallen in their profession.  This is optional.

  • Q.How long will it take?

    A.We will have 2 flights of stairs open and 4 elevators bringing climbers back down.   It’s a 24 story building.  To reach 110 flights, we will climb 5 times (yes that’s a little more than 110!).    This can typically be completed in less than 2 hours.
