Climb for a Cause 2023

Anytime Fitness invites everyone to participate in the annual “Climb for a Cause” fundraiser, set for Sept. 11-17.

There is no better time to show your support for firefighters in their selfless efforts to save lives and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice on Sept. 11, 2001.

Anytime Fitness invites club members and community members to make a $5 donation for every 15 minutes on the stair climber, with the goal of climbing the equivalent of 110 flights of stairs, representing the 110 floors of the World Trade Center, or participate in as many steps as you choose.

Any donation amount is welcome, regardless of steps climbed. All proceeds will be given to the local fire department. Stop by Anytime Fitness or call 554-1555 to schedule your time.

Did you know?

The World Trade Center had 110 stories in each tower. That’s 1,980 steps. The North Tower was 1,368 feet high, while the South Tower was 1,362 feet high. Each day 50,000 people worked in the Twin Towers — that’s nearly four times the town of Huron! Sadly, 343 firefighters died on Sept. 11th. Now, thousands of firefighters climb steps every year on this day to pay tribute to those who lost their lives.
