Phi Kappa Tau will host the 9/11 Tower Challenge at the McConagha Stadium at Muskingum University on September 11, featuring first responder speakers, refreshments and activities, as well as a prayer from the university’s new chaplain.
For the second year in a row, Phi Kappa Tau aims to honor the first responders who served on September 11th, 2001. This event will take place at 5:30 PM and will open with a speech from New Concord Fire Chief, Matthew Hamsher. Following Hamsher will be an opening prayer led by University Chaplain, Derek Wadlington.
The fraternity urges everyone to try the 9/11 Tower Challenge that will take place after the designated speakers. The challenge consists of climbing the stadium stairs to represent how first responders climbed the 110 floors of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers. Water and refreshments will be provided.
Donations are being accepted, and all proceeds will go to the local fire departments. Checks and cash can be made out to Phi Kappa Tau and be sent to 260 Stadium Drive, New Concord OH. Venmo donations can be made out to ryan-miller20.
