More than 5,000 people joined together on Sunday, April 22, for the 9/11 Memorial & Museum’s sixth annual 5K Run/Walk and Community Day to raise awareness about the organization’s mission and to honor and remember the nearly 3,000 men, women and children who died on 9/11.
Thousands ran and walked to remember loved ones and to raise funds that help sustain the 9/11 Memorial & Museum as a lasting place for remembrance, reflection, and learning. After the race, the streets surrounding the 9/11 Memorial were packed with people of all ages for Community Day, which featured food, live music and activities for kids.
See below for scenes from this year’s race and Community Day, and join us in 2019 to run or walk for a good cause.
