Registration is open for the seventh annual 9/11 Memorial & Museum 5K Run/Walk and Community Day, which will be held on Sunday, April 28, 2019.

After 9/11, thousands of people descended to Ground Zero to help in the rescue and recovery efforts. These men and women worked tirelessly for nine months, risking their own health in the process, to help their community recover and heal. It showed the tremendous capacity of the human spirit.

This year, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum 5K Run/Walk and Community Day is dedicated to their service and sacrifice. All the funds raised will support the construction of the 9/11 Memorial Glade, an evolution of the 9/11 Memorial, dedicated to all who were injured, became sickened or died because of their work or exposure to contaminants during the recovery operations in the aftermath of 9/11.

Once again, the route begins in lower Manhattan and takes participants through scenic Battery Park with iconic views of One World Trade Center and the Statue of Liberty. The 5K Run/Walk finishes adjacent to the Memorial plaza where Community Day takes place, which is an event free and open to the public featuring activities and entertainment for all ages.

Join us and race chairman Jon Stewart in supporting the 9/11 Memorial Glade. Register now and use the code “EARLY2019” by Feb. 22 to get reduced entry.
