The Rancho Santa Fe Firefighters Association partnered with Atomic Groove and the Belly Up Tavern Aug. 24 in Solana Beach to host a fundraiser benefiting San Diego-based 501(c)(3) FirefighterAid and the San Diego 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb.
The Rancho Santa Fe firefighters believe in FirefighterAid’s mission, whose platform of programs includes the prevention of firefighter-related cancers, as well as mental wellness and suicide-prevention initiatives.
Each year, local firefighters, joined by community members, take to the stairs to climb 110-stories, the height of the Twin Towers, in full gear in the San Diego 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb. Since 2014, the Rancho Santa Fe Firefighters’ 9/11 Stair Climb Team has fundraised over $40,000 for the event’s beneficiary, FirefighterAid. Tax-deductible donations to the RSF Firefighters’ Team can be made online: give.classy.org/RSFfirefighters.The 2018 San Diego 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb takes place on Saturday, Sept. 8 that the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. www.sandiegostairclimb.com.
