Springfield Thunderbirds Stair Climb
January 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
The Springfield Thunderbirds have announced the creation of the first-ever Thunderbirds Stair Climb on Saturday, January 28 at the MassMutual Center, between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.; the Stair Climb will coincide with the Thunderbirds’ annual Hometown Heroes Night presented by M&T Bank.
First responders who wish to participate in the Stair Climb can register for $20 (game tickets for all first responders will be available complimentary for the game after the event); those in the general public who are not first responders are also welcome to participate for a rate of $35. A portion of the registration proceeds from the Stair Climb will go to the T-Birds Foundation, with support from the American Lung Association.
Thunderbirds ticket members may also add on the Stair Climb, if they choose to participate, for a rate of $20, by contacting their T-Birds ticket representative.
Registrations will give participants access to the Stair Climb, one Defense zone ticket to the Thunderbirds’ game that evening against the Belleville Senators (puck drop is 7:05 p.m.), a voucher for a hot dog & soda, and a donation to the Thunderbirds Foundation.
First responders participating in the Stair Climb are encouraged to do so in full uniform attire, as is the tradition at many other events of its kind. The climb route will take approximately 12-15 minutes, and will feature 1,121 arena steps.
