About This Activity

Honor our fallen heroes, who sacrificed so much for our country on 9/11/2001, by completing the 9/11 Twin Towers Challenge.  This Challenge consists of 220 flights of stairs to be climbed in the fastest time you can manage.  This is to symbolize the physical requirements of what our heroes underwent that dredfull day.  Although you will not have gear or poor conditions, this will give you a similar feeling of ascending 110 flights in one tower and descending 110 flights to evacuate the building.  Please remember it was a burning building, which is why speed is impairative.
