Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the 2015 San Antonio 110 9/11 Memorial Climb. This year was once again a great success and repeatedly accounted by participants as our best year yet. We look forward to many years to come and every year creating an even better tribute for our fallen and for our brotherhood. The main reason we mark this success is the reason we do this at all: Once again all 343 of our fallen firefighters were paid tribute to and their name and photo carried in honor of them. In addition 70 fallen Law Enforcement and 9 EMS personnel were paid tribute to as well. We were again truly one brotherhood under one cause once again and paid a tribute worthy of respect for our fallen heroes. That is thanks to all of you who participated and supported this effort. May we never forget why we do this, why we sweat and remember and pay tribute, for those who gave their life on 9/11 in the dedication, courage, and integrity exemplified by these men and women of our profession. May we always remember these brothers and sisters who we know not as mere names and faces but by the bond of brotherhood and their sacrifice. May we never forget them. Thank you for being a part of this solemn memorial and for your tribute to our fallen of 9/11.
As one we succeed in a little but as one made of many we succeed in a lot. We find the truth of this each year we do this memorial event. It is humbling and awe-inspiring to be witness to what a force we have become in our dedication to this common goal and our desire and love of our brethren we pay tribute to. I am honored to be even a small part of that. We thank you all for your unwavering support and dedication to this cause and allowing us to facilitate this tribute for all of you, and most of all, for our fallen.
The San Antonio 110 9/11 Memorial Climb would like to once again thank everyone who supported it's efforts this year. It was such an amazing year of tribute. This year's SA110 had over 70 different agencies represented for this cause. Each and every one of you should be very proud of the great respect and tribute paid to our fallen, these heroes who exemplified the integrity and courage of our profession, these brothers and sisters we promised to never forget for it.
The SA110 is non-monetary-goal based event. Which means our only true goal and sole purpose is to provide our one cause, the tribute itself. This year, as the last two years, we once again received enough funds to pay our expenses, put our initial early budgeted funds into our account for next year's start up, and still have enough left over to donate to a chosen beneficiary. This is astounding! It was a touch-and-go year this year with donations but in the end we were able to do this thanks to everyone who donated and all of the awesome businesses and organizations who supported us. On October 14th we presented Texas Burn Survivor Society with a proceed check for $8,361.98! Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen for this great local organization.
Until next year, Thank you once again and stay safe,
Your San Antonio 110 9/11 Memorial Climb Committee
