Tribute to a Heroic Journey

The City of Black Hawk 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a way for first responders and the general public to remember September 11, 2001, honor the memory of those who were lost, and support a worthwhile cause. Your individual tribute not only remembers their sacrifice, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Participants climb to pay tribute to the fallen 343 firefighters, 60 police officers, 8 EMT’s, and 3 state officers whose photos and names line the stairwells.

The Black Hawk 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb began in 2009 at the Ameristar Casino Resort Spa in Black Hawk, Colorado with just a few members of the Black Hawk Fire Department and Gilpin Ambulance Authority climbing to honor those who were lost on September 11, 2001. Over the years, the memorial climb has grown to involve other fire departments, City personnel, business partners, casino staff, family, and friends.
