11th Annual RFTC 9/11 Firefighter Stair Climb
Hunterdon Medical Center, 2100 Wescott Drive Flemington, NJ 08822
Check out below for more information and tickets!
The Raritan Township Fire Company in partnership with Hunterdon Health will be hosting our 10th annual 9/11 Stairclimb to honor those that made the ultimate sacrifice September 11, 2001. Additionally, to honor those who embody the phrase "so that others might live," we will be commemorating the 35th anniversary of the men and women of Hunterdon Health's Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU).
The challenge of the event is to climb the equivalent number of stairs FDNY firefighters climbed in the World Trade Center prior to the collapses. This is not a race. It is highly suggested that you be physically up to the task as we begin our dedication to their sacrifice in full turnout gear. The climb takes approximately 1.5 hours. Drinks and light snacks will be provided during the climb and lunch will be served at the conclusion of the stair climb. This event is open to all 1st responders and the general public.
There will be t-shirts issued to the first few hundred signups, and there is a maximum of 343 participants. Signups must be completed online prior to the event.
All proceeds will be donated to the FEALGood Foundation to support those battling illnesses systemic from working 'the Pile.' Information about the FEALGood Foundation can be found by visiting http://fealgoodfoundation.com/
We look forward to climbing with you!
