Stair climb to honor first responders, vets

Fort Worth’s first responder stair climb, Climb for a Calling, is a tribute to the sacrifices of fallen heroes. Fulfilling a promise to never forget their brothers and sisters who have died in the line of duty, participants will climb honoring the fallen at 8 a.m. Sept. 9.

The climb will be no easy feat. At 40 stories high and 567 feet tall, Burnett Plaza is the tallest building in Fort Worth. Burnett Plaza is at 800 Cherry St.

The climb consists of two and a half laps, representing the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Registration information can be found on their website.

Medical teams and water stations will be staged throughout the climb to ensure a safe experience for all.

Spectators are welcome to the event. Burnett Park will be transformed into a carnival atmosphere with food trucks, live music, vendors, clowns and more.


I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 32 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard.I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".Contact me directly at lee@leeeverton.com for scheduling information.
