9/11 5K Memorial Run/Walk and Family Day, April 21st

March 27, 2013 3 comments

On April 21, 2013, the 9/11 Memorial will host a 5K Run/Walk and Family Day to raise awareness about the National September 11 Memorial & Museum and to encourage volunteerism. The 5K is 3.1 miles.

All funds raised through your participation in the 9/11 Memorial Run/Walk and Family Day will support the 9/11 Memorial and 9/11 Memorial Museum.

The Run/Walk and Family Day will take place in lower Manhattan, taking participants on a historic route passing important places that are part of the 9/11 story. The route will also symbolize how we came together to support one another in the aftermath of 9/11.

The date of the Run/Walk and Family Day – April 21 – marks the anniversary President Barack Obama signed into law legislation making 9/11 a day of service and volunteerism in the memory of the victims of the 2001 attacks.

Please register by April 2, 2013 for discounted early registration fees.
