Date set for Columbia Memorial Stair Climb

April 5, 2018 by  

On September 11, 2001, first responders of all kinds risked their lives to save others, and a Columbia event will honor both them and all those affected by the events of that day.

Faurot Field in Memorial Stadium will be the venue for this year’s Colombia Memorial Stair Climb. It will see firefighters, law enforcement personnel, first responders and others climb 110 flights of stairs, which they will do to represent the efforts of emergency responders who assisted during the events at the World Trade Center.

Each of the climbers will receive the option to order a challenge coin when they register, and they will also receive a T-shirt that has been specially designed for the occasion. Promotional products such as this can be crafted by an area printer. They will also be given a lanyard that includes the name and photo of one of the emergency personnel from September 11, and they will wear this to honor them during the climb.

Before starting out, the participants will be included in an opening ceremony, and there will also be a post-climb celebration. The proceeds that are raised during this occasion will be donated to both the Firefighter Cancer Support Network and SafetyNet of Missouri.

This special event will be held on May 5 in Columbia. Its Facebook listing can be consulted for further details.
