In April 2009, the U.S. Congress designated September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. Now, each April, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum 5K Run/Walk and Community Day seeks to honor and affirm that spirit.
This year the 5K will support the 9/11 Memorial Glade, an evolution to the 9/11 Memorial. The Glade is dedicated to all who were injured, sickened or died as a result of their work or exposure to contaminants during the recovery operations that lasted for months at the World Trade Center site in the aftermath of 9/11.
It will also pay tribute to the courage, fortitude and perseverance of those who took part in the rescue and recovery efforts, and whose determined efforts paved the way to rebuilding and renewal.
The 9/11 Memorial & Museum 5K Run/Walk is open to everyone. Children 12 and under can participate for free. Please note, child registration comes with a bib only and does not include T-shirt or race bag. Child size shirts ($8 each) can be added to your cart during the registration process.
The general adult registration price for the 9/11 Memorial & Museum Run/Walk is $50. Discounted registration is available for students, military and local first responders. Registration gives you access to 5K and Community Day activities. We are encouraging all of our participants to fundraise and/or make an additional donation on top of their registration fee to help us raise much needed funds to support the 9/11 Memorial Glade.
Once you register, you will be added to the event mailing list, where you will receive information regarding the event and fundraising.
You may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please allow 3–5 weeks for shipping. All items will be delivered prior to race day. Please note we do not accept returns or cancellations on orders already placed.
When you sign up for our event on RunSignUp, you will be invited to set up a fundraising page where people can support you by making donations that will benefit construction of the 9/11 Memorial Glade.
Thank you for committing to raise money for the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. Our race website will allow you to create your personal fundraising page. You can add a photo and create your own link to email friends and family, and post on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can share why you're running and ask them to support you by making a donation. We are also available to help you fundraise. Just email email@example.com.
You are not required to fundraise, but you are encouraged to do so. Your efforts will help to support the building of the 9/11 Memorial Glade.
We are encouraging all our participants to raise at least $25. However, this is not a requirement (or a maximum!).
