Event Rules

Event rules have been established to provide for the safety of participants, volunteers, guests and outline the decorum necessary to ensure the objectives of our event are met.

 

The objectives of the Dallas 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb are to provide:

  • A safe environment for climbers, volunteers, and guests

  • A solemn and reverent memorial event that is free from commercial and political influence

  • An event that occurs annually on or near the September 11th anniversary date

  • An opportunity to honor the victims of 9/11, as well as fallen Texas heroes

  • An opportunity for local individuals, businesses, and organizations to support local Firefighters, Police Officers and EMS and their families

  • An opportunity for the public to witness local heroes’ commitment to duty and ability to perform

  • Motivation for Firefighters, Police Officers and EMS to be physically prepared for the rigors of their profession

 

Those who fail to abide by these rules may forfeit their right to participate in this and future
