A special event dedicated to honoring those who gave their lives on September 11, 2001 will be occurring this Sunday.

The 2023 Binghamton Fire 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb will take place at Mirabito Stadium at 9 a.m. following an opening ceremony. On-site registration starts at 8 a.m.

Participants will climb the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. This event is limited to 343 participants, to honor the 343 firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice in 2001.

You can register as an individual climber or as part of a team.

All funds raised from the event go to the FDNY Counseling Service Unit and the programs of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to support the families of fallen firefighters.

The goal for this year's event is $6,000 and so far $3740.40 has been raised.
