Jackson Fire Department to host 2nd Annual Patriot Day Memorial Stair Climb
Jackson Fire Department is announcing the 2nd Annual Patriot Day Memorial Stair Climb at 8:00 a.m., Saturday, September 9, 2023, at the Ballpark at Jackson, 4 Fun Place, in Jackson, Tennessee.
The objective of this event is to bring awareness and honor all heroic first responders that tragically lost their lives in the line of duty on that day.
“We are excited to host the Patriot Day Memorial Stair Climb at the Ballpark for the second year in Jackson, TN,” said Jackson Fire Department Fire Marshal LaTrell Billingsley. “By hosting this event we want to make sure we never forget those who died during this tragic point in our nation’s history.”
The stair climb is open to all first responders, military personnel, and members of the community. The stair climb will consist of participants ascending approximately 2200 stairs, which is symbolic of the 110 stories ascended by first responders at the World Trade Center. The stair climb may be completed in full personal protective gear, partial gear, or gym clothes. In addition to the stair climb, there will also be ground games held for adults and children, vendor booths, a dunking booth, and much more! We look forward to your support of this worthy cause to honor those who have gone before us.
