Cincinnati 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb hosted by Cintas supported National Fallen Firefighters Foundation on Saturday
CINCINNATI (September 12, 2023) -- The Cincinnati 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb hosted by Cintas was held on Saturday at TQL Stadium, with more than 600 participants who raised nearly $50,000 for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
The NFFF 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb honored and remembered the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on September 11, 2001.
“During the event, each participant paid tribute to a FDNY firefighter by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center,” said John Amann, President & Chief Operations Officer at Cintas Fire Protection. “Cintas is proud of its annual support of the Nation Fallen Firefighters Foundation to help remember the sacrifice of all affected by the tragedy of 9/11.”
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.
