You can get very familiar with Door County’s newest attraction while remembering the lives lost on 9/11. Pioneer Fire Company, the Sturgeon Bay Fire Department’s non-profit arm, is teaming up with the Door County Maritime Museum for the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb Race. Participants will climb the museum’s Maritime Tower ten times in remembrance of the 110-story World Trade Center. After taking a few years off from commemorating the terrorist attacks, Sturgeon Bay Assistant Fire Chief Kalin Montevideo says this year’s anniversary is one to remember.
You will not be trudging up the stairs by yourself either. In addition to the other participants, everyone will receive a card with the name of a person lost during the attacks to keep with them. Upon finishing, the Sturgeon Bay Fire Department Honor Guard will ring a bell in their memory. Proceeds from the event will benefit both the Pioneer Fire Company and Door County Maritime Museum. Registration is open now for the event, which is scheduled to take place on September 11th at 9 a.m.
