YELLOW SPRINGS – Registration is now open for the Second Annual Yellow Springs 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at Antioch College, to be held Sept. 26 in Antioch College’s historic Antioch Hall.

Registration is open to individuals and teams. The event benefits the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, a 501(C)3 charitable organization.

The Stair Climb is not a timed race event, but a way for firefighters, EMTs, law enforcement officers and members of the community to honor and remember the first responders who selflessly gave their lives so that others may live. Each participant pays tribute to an individual firefighter or police officer killed on 9/11 by carrying a card with their picture and name. Participants will climb the equivalent of 110 stories at Antioch Hall.

Registration is $35 and includes lunch, snacks and a T-shirt. To register for the Stair Climb, visit www.ysstairclimb.com; for more information, contact Colin Altman at 937-767-7842.
