11 September 2001: Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice 911 Tower Challenge Foundation: 11 September 2022
Climbing 2071 steps representing the 110 floors of the Twin Towers on 9/11 every year in remembrance in Tucson, Arizona and Virtual. In honour of those who lost their lives on 11 September 2001 and in continued honour of our first responders and military who protect us from foreign and domestic threats, we gather to pay our respects at the annual 911 Tower Challenge.
The World Trade Centre’s Twin Towers each consisted of 110 floors and 2071 steps and each year thousands of people across Arizona walk, climb and run the stairs to remember. Fire fighters in full gear, police, military and bomb squad personnel march steadily alongside civilians of varying ages, abilities and backgrounds.
Photographs of our fallen heroes line the stairs and participants pause briefly to read the names in recognition of the sacrifice each made while in the service of others. This powerful morning will reconnect you to the kindness, strength and bravery exhibited on that dark day.
Together we vow to Never Forget.
Join the Tower Challenge on Sunday, 11 September 2022 in Tucson, US or virtually from around the world!
