Jason Patton, firefighter and co-founder, Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation, has announced that he will climb 110 flights of stairs for the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb on Sept. 11, 2019, in San Antonio, Texas.

The event is a memorial to the 343 fallen firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty on Sept. 11, 2001. Patton and the Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation will use the opportunity to raise support for the Tommy Cullen Foundation, which supports families of firefighters battling cancer.

“I am forever humbled by the sacrifice of those men and women who answered the call on September 11,” says Patton. “Not only is this climb a poignant way to recognize the fallen, it’s also an opportunity to uplift the living.”

While participants are encouraged to wear their firefighter gear as they climb the symbolic 110 floors of the World Trade Center Twin Towers, Patton has decided to take it a step further for charity. He has announced that for every $500 he raised, he will add 10 pounds of weight to his climb.
