Sign Up Now for the 9th Annual 9/11 Firefighter Stairclimb
The Raritan Township Fire Company invites you to be a part of their 9th Annual 9/11 Firefighter Stairclimb on Sunday, September 8th, 8am - noon, at Hunterdon Medical Center, to honor the memory of the New York City Firefighters killed on September 11th, 2001, and help those still struggling with their post 9/11 life.
They've partnered with Hunterdon Medical Center to host this year's event. The money raised will go to the FealGood Foundation, whose mission is "educating elected officials and private entities on the various problems, concerns and issues faced by First Responders in their everyday duties. The FGF is dedicated to advocating for First Responder rights and illuminating, to proper authorities, the serious issues they encounter." They also provide financial assistance to help those in need with well-being expenses.
There were 343 New York City Firefighters killed on September 11th, and the challenge is to climb the number of stairs that they all climbed in the World Trade Center before it collapsed. The climb will take about an hour and a half. Drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
