Thousands gather annually in lower Manhattan for our 5K, which follows the path rescue and recovery workers took down West Street on their way to Ground Zero on 9/11 and in the days and weeks that followed. This is a truly inspirational run/walk honoring those who bravely stepped in to help when our city and country needed them most. The next 5K will take place on Sunday, April 28, 2024.

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum relies on the generosity of its donors and visitors, including corporate members, to ensure that this magnificent and vibrant Museum continues to honor those killed on 9/11 and commemorate the sacrifice, humanity, and bravery displayed on that tragic day and in the months that followed.

The Never Forget Fund

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum preserves the history of that tragic day more than two decades ago, so the over 100 million young people born since 9/11 will never forget how we responded. The Never Forget Fund has helped us reach nearly 3.5 million students, educators, professional audiences, and community members with our 9/11 Anniversary Digital Learning Experience, on-site workshops, professional development opportunities, and virtual field trips.
