Join us in remembering the brave men and women who paid the ultimate price on September 11, 2001. Each year, we invite members and the public to recognize the first responders who gave their all on 9/11 by climbing the equivalent of 110 flights of stairs on our stair climbers. This is the same number of flights that fire, police, EMT’s and other heroes climbed on 9/11.

Stair climbers can be reserved in the Mattoon Area Family YMCA app or at the Welcome Desk for either location. Reservations will be available from Friday, September 10th through Sunday, September 12th. Call (217) 234-9494 for Mattoon or (217) 235-2500 for Toledo. One-hour spots will be available from open to close on the day of the climb.
