2017 San Antonio 110 9/11 Memorial Climb
Monday, September 11th, 2017
Check-in tables 6-720am (late check-in is not allowed)
@ The Tower Of The Americas, San Antonio, TX
San Antonio 110 9/11 Memorial Climb is a very specific type of 9/11 memorial. There is a reason it is not a 5k, a bike ride, or any other type of event.
There is a reason it is specifically a climb: to pay tribute to the climb that our 343 fallen firefighter brothers made, and lost their lives in the course of, on September 11th, 2001. That is why we climb, in honor of their sacrifice. In addition we also incorporate tribute to other tragic first responder casualties of 9/11 including the 70 Law Enforcement Officers and 9 EMS personnel who perished at ground zero as well. We highly encourage all types of tributes at our event and for everyone to pay tribute as they feel moved and best fit to. However the sole mission of "110 climbs", created all across the country, is for our brotherhood to honor and remember the lost lives of our 343 firefighters. SA110 is special in that we also open it to the public as well for friends and family to come and pay respect to the losses of 9/11 while still keeping true to the 110 purpose for our brotherhood.
343 tags will be carried for each of our fallen firefighter brothers up the stairs of the Tower Of The Americas. There will also be 70 tags for the fallen Law Enforcement Officers and 9 for EMS personnel. We will climb these stairs twice to reach (and actually exceed) the 110 floors of the World Trade Center to pay tribute to each. We will complete these climbs for them and their accountability tag will be placed on an accountability board when finished. There are many other symbolic moments and events represented in this event as well to pay respect and honor the lost lives of our brothers of 9/11.
Just as the precedence list gives first priority to firefighters for the 343 firefighter tags, the Law Enforcement and EMS tags will give first precedence to Law Enforcement and EMS participants, first come first serve, by profession. Online registration is the only way to get on this list and participate in the event.
