Remember. Honor. Climb.

Welcome to the official webpage of the West Palm Beach Memorial Stair Climb, an annual event that honors the 343 firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty during the tragic events of September 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center.

About the Event

Every year, our community gathers to climb the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center, symbolizing the heroic journey that the fallen firefighters undertook on that fateful day. We come together not just as firefighters but as a community united in remembering and honoring the ultimate sacrifice made by these heroes.

Why We Climb

The West Palm Beach Memorial Stair Climb is more than just a physical endeavor—it's a poignant tribute to courage, sacrifice, and commitment. The stair climb is designed to emulate the trek that 343 brave souls took to save others, knowing the risks they faced.
