Event Needs:

Climbers, and Individual and Corporate Sponsorship still needed

The Panama City Beach 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb Fundraiser started back in 2011 as a special way to remember the 10th Anniversary of the tragic events that happened on September 11 2001 and pays tribute to the lives that were lost on that day (Firefighters, EMS, Law Enforcement, Military, and civilians). We climb 110 flights of stairs which was the height of the World Trade Center Towers in their honor. All monies raised goes towards the Emerald Coast First Responders Association and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation charities/projects.


Our event is open to anyone that wants to climb: Fire, EMS, Law Enforcement, Military, and Civilian, and takes place rain or shine.


On site registration via debit/credit card, Challenge Coin for sale, the ability for climb in honor of a Firefighter, EMS, or Law Enforcement personnel, one set fee no additional processing fee, and the ability to have individual sponsorship (where you have family and friends donate extra money to help sponsor your climb).


This is our LAST year of hosting the climb.
