Memorial 5k Run/Walk. Register. Spread Word.

Registration for the first 9/11 Memorial 5K Run/Walk and Family Day is now open. Both events are on Sunday, April 21, 2013. Space is limited for the run/walk so register early. You don’t need to register for Family Day, which is free and open to everyone.

April 21 – the day of the event – marks the anniversary of the date President Barack Obama signed into law the 2009 Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act that designates September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance.

The 9/11 Memorial 5K Run/Walk and Family Day will support the National September 11 Memorial and Museum and encourage volunteer service in honor of those lost on 9/11.
