A special edition exclusive numbered Deployment Challenge Coin has been created for the first 343 registrants of the 3rd Annual FDIC 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb on Friday, April 26 at Lucas Oil Stadium. Sign up today and show others that you are ready for the challenge of climbing 110 stories. The climb honors the memories of the FDNY firefighters who died on September 11, 2001 and raises funds to assist their families and colleagues.
“This special FDIC 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb Challenge Coin is our way of saying thank you to those who want to be certain that the 343 members of FDNY will never be forgotten,” said Chief Bobby Halton, editor-in-chief of Fire Engineering Magazine and education director of FDIC.

The FDIC 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb is sponsored by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and benefits the FDNY Counseling Unit. Participants can select the firefighter they want to honor when they register and their name will be displayed under the picture of the FDNY firefighter on the registration web site. Only the first 343 to register will receive the exclusive numbered Deployment FDIC 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb Challenge Coin which was created and donated by 4 Alarm Promotions.
Check-in is between 12:00 and 1:00 p.m. at the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation Booth #9448 in Lucas Oil Stadium and the climb will begin at 1:30 p.m. Participants will walk the stadium stairwells three times, representing the number of floors in the Twin Towers. Climbers will have the option to start in turn-out gear or wear their work uniforms or gym clothes. The cost is $25 per person. Teams of 3 can register, with each person completing one rotation. Participants will receive a photo and badge of one of the fallen heroes of September 11th as well as a shirt.
