Details:

The 2016 City of Black Hawk 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a way for first responders and the general public to remember September 11, 2001, honor the memory of those who were lost,and support a worthwhile cause. Your individual tribute not only remembers their sacrifice, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Participants climb to pay tribute to the fallen 343 firefighters, 60 police officers, 8 EMT’s,and 3 state officers whose photos and names line the stairwells.

The Black Hawk 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb began in 2009 at the Ameristar Casino Resort Spa in Black Hawk, Colorado with just a few members of the Black Hawk Fire Department and Gilpin Ambulance Authority climbing to honor those who were lost on September 11, 2001. Over the years, the memorial climb has grown to involve other fire departments, City personnel, business partners, casino staff, family, and friends.

The stair climb,sponsored by the City of Black Hawk and hosted by the Ameristar, is supported by the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control with its National Fire Academy Weekend. The proceeds from the event will support the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) who create and maintain programs that support fire service survivors. NFFF provides much needed assistance to the surviving families and co-workers of the firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001.

The Black Hawk 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb has a unique added degree of difficulty. Unlike other climbs, participants will not only begin the challenge at 8,042 feet above sea level, but will also gain 192 feet of elevation, making the Black Hawk 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb the highest stair climb in the world.

Participants will climb a total of 116 floors in four laps in the Ameristar hotel tower, exceeding the total levels of the World Trade Center by six floors. Each lap takes participants to the Ameristar’s pool deck with majestic views of the area before descending back to ground level. This event is not a race, rather a gathering to honor the fallen, help those who were affected on that day, and let the world know we will never forget.

Participants should prepare for the drastic change in elevation and understand their personal limits. This is not a competition. Participants do not need to complete all four laps to participate.

Event participants may choose to complete the climb wearing their uniform, bunker gear, SCBA, or workout clothes, as desired. (SCBA and bunker gear will not be provided, please bring your own).

The Utah Healing Field’s massive posting of U.S. flags, the nation’s original Healing Field®, commemorates that a decade and a half have passed since commandeered airliners crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a grassy field in the Pennsylvania countryside.  Thus, transpired a horrific event that all thought the nation and the world could never forget.

Yet, with the passage of time even strong memories fade, and with the press of daily lives significant memories are pushed into the background of the mind.  Through the years Utah’s Healing Field® flag display has been an annual reminder of that beautiful fall day in 2001 when a bright blue sky became filled with fire, smoke, and clouds of debris.  For youth and children too young to remember, experience does not offer any memory of the day which changed the world.

This coming 11th day of September, volunteers will again post more than 3,000 U.S. flags on the lawns of the Sandy Promenade to honor the martyrs to world freedom who died that day.  Come walk with us through ordered rows and columns of this solemn formation in order that adults may remember and youth may learn.

Support of Utah’s 15th Anniversary Healing Field® display will draw our communities together in renewing our determination that terrorism will fail and freedom will prevail.

Funds raised will benefit Labs 4 Liberty they have a two-fold mission.  First, they raise and train Labrador retrievers to be given as service dogs for wounded warriors.  Second, they help veterans and their families heal by providing vacation retreats for combat veterans and their families.
