Samaritan Center is memorializing the 20th anniversary of 9/11 with a tower climb at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) Observation Tower. The event honors the victims and heroes from the 9/11 tragedy.


The event is open to everyone of all ages and all fitness levels who would like to climb the COTA Tower. Participants are invited to climb the stairs to the observation deck and back down four times to mimic the number of floors (110) in both Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. Any amount of climbing is highly encouraged – a person can climb the COTA Tower once or as many times as they want.


Registration is $30 per person to climb the tower plus a limited-edition poster memorializing the event. Industry, a local artist-run print shop founded by Tony and Jennifer Diaz, will be screen-printing commemorative t-shirts live at the event that will be available for sale on site. Circuit of the Americas will be donating sales of the t-shirts to the Samaritan Center.


About COTA Observation Tower
Towering 251-feet into the Austin sky is the iconic Observation Tower. COTA’s colorful centerpiece features an array of 18 red, decorative steel pipes that flow from above the observation deck, down its north side. The Tower is 25 stories up and has 419 stairs. 


Benefiting Samaritan Center
