CINCINNATI (June 20, 2023) -- Registration is now open for Cintas Corporation’s 2023 National Fallen Firefighter Foundation 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb to be held at TQL Stadium, 1501 Central Parkway, downtown Cincinnati, on September 9, at 8 a.m. 

The NFFF 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a way to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on September 11, 2001.  

Cintas is a proud partner of the NFFF, and funds raised from the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climbs provide direct support to families of fallen firefighters and support programs of the FDNY. Each year, the NFFF sponsors 9/11 Memorial Stair Climbs around the country to remember and commemorate the heroism and ultimate sacrifices made by firefighters on Sept. 11, 2001.  

During the event, each participant pays tribute to a FDNY firefighter by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. The individual tributes not only remember the sacrifice of a FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others.  

Registration is now available here.  

There are three ways to participate: Individual, Team Captain or Team Member. Individual registration is $35 and includes a guaranteed event T-shirt. Registration increases to $45 on August 18, and participants who register after August 18 will be able to pick up their event t-shirts at the Stair Climb on Sept. 9 at TQL Stadium.
