9/11 Memorial 5K Run/Walk & Family Day
Sunday, April 21st, 2013 9:00 AMJoin the 9/11 Memorial on April 21, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. for a 5K Run/Walk and Family Day to support the National September 11 Memorial & Museum and to encourage volunteerism in honor of those lost on 9/11.
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 route will also symbolize how we came together to support one another in the aftermath of 9/11. The 5K Run/Walk course will take participants on a historic route that will pass important places in the story of 9/11 and highlight how we came together in the aftermath of 9/11. Some points of interest along the route will include the Police Memorial in Battery Park City and "Point Thank You" where people gathered along West Street to cheer and thank the 9/11 rescue and recovery workers as they headed to Ground Zero.
Gathering point before Run/Walk: Hudson River Park's Pier 57 in Hudson River Park and 15th Street.
The date of the Run/Walk and Family Day is April 21st which marks the anniversary of when 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.
