Lakeside Fire Fighters Will Climb to Honor 9-11

Lakeside, Ca. - 

A team of Lakeside firefighters and their family members will be climbing 110-stories to honor the sacrifices made on 9/11 by firefighters, police officers, and EMS workers. The annual event, known as the San Diego 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2013, at the San Diego Bayfront Hilton.

The event is a fundraiser for FirefighterAid, A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to caring for firefighters and their families through sickness, distress, and death.

The firefighters on the Lakeside team will climb in full firefighting bunker gear with SCBA (air tanks). This year will mark the third year of Lakeside's participation in this worthwhile event.

If you would like to make a donation to this fundraising effort in the name of the Lakeside Fire Fighters team, visit our fundraising page HERE.

Please come join us for on September 8, 2013, for a day of remembrance and fun.

  1. I've done this event the past two years but due to medical issue this year I have to sit this one out.. Might just still come out and support all those that are climbing this year!
