The Association believes that all memorial stair climbs, regardless of affiliation, should have planning committee members who are committed to doing the right thing, for the right reasons. To that end the, Association has penned the following declaration which serves to unify those of us who work very hard to NEVER FORGET.
Declaration of Memorial Stair Climbs
As a Memorial Stair Climb we exist to hold an honorable event that foremost pays tribute to the sacrifices of fallen first responders and/or the events of September 11, 2001.
In all endeavors our event vows to hold the surviving spouses and family in high esteem, remain free of unnecessary outside influence, and provide for the safety of event participants.
All our event proceeds shall solely support and strengthen the memorial event and benefit first responders and their families.
Our climb is NOT created to be an extreme sporting event, primarily a fundraising campaign or a means by which individuals can profit financially.
