Thank you to everyone who participated in the 9/11 Memorial & Museum Nationwide Run/Walk on Sunday, April 25. You joined us from across the United States and around the world. We were excited to see people running and walking in Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Ireland, and Germany, to name just a few.
Together we achieved our goal of collectively running and walking 20,000 miles to remember those killed nearly 20 years ago and to honor the heroes who put their own lives at risk to save others. You ran 5Ks, 10Ks and even a full marathon to help push us over the finish line and complete the 20,000-mile challenge—and your stories about why you participated continue to inspire us.
Our participants created community and corporate teams made up of their friends, families, and coworkers to run and walk in remembrance of loved ones and raised crucial funds that will help sustain the 9/11 Memorial & Museum as a lasting place for inspiration, commemoration, and education. You can watch the opening ceremony for this year’s Run/Walk below.
