Join Boss Services and local emergency responders for the 3rd annual 9/11 Hero Climb to remember our fallen heroes and to raise funds for our local Berrien County fire departments to purchase vital, life-saving equipment.
Alongside local first responders from area police departments, fire stations, and EMTs, we invite you to climb the stadium stairs, Monday, September 11th at 8:46 am - the same time the first plane hit the first tower.
***Can't climb? Walk 1 mile on the track in support!***
These are OUR heroes, and together we will climb 2,071 stadium steps to symbolize the 110 floors and 2,071 steps to the top of the Twin Towers. Climb with us!
100% of the proceeds will go towards the purchase of life-saving gear and vital equipment for Berrien County first responders.
