The National September 11 Memorial & Museum will host its fifth annual 9/11 Memorial & Museum 5K Run/Walk and Community Day on Sunday, April 23.
There is still time to register. Visit 911memorial.org/5K for more information and to sign up for the event. Proceeds help to support the 9/11 Memorial & Museum.
“Our fifth annual 5K Run/Walk and Community Day is an opportunity for family and friends to join together in support of public service dedicated to those killed on 9/11,” said Alice Greenwald, 9/11 Memorial & Museum President. “This yearly tradition also invites us to recognize and follow in the footsteps of those who came together in a spirit of generosity and resilience in the days, weeks, and months after the attacks – the volunteers and rescue and recovery workers who taught us what community really means.”
The Memorial would like to thank RXR Realty, who is returning as the event’s title sponsor.
“The 9/11 Memorial 5K Run/Walk and Community Day is about remembering those who were lost on that fateful day, and to show how we continue to move forward together as a community,” said Scott Rechler, CEO and Chairman of RXR Realty. “RXR Realty is honored and proud to sponsor this annual event, which unites thousands of people across the Tri-State Area in raising awareness for the 9/11 Memorial & Museum.”
More than 5,000 people participated in the 5K Run/Walk in 2016. To access photos and video from last year’s event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 5K will begin at Pier 26 in Tribeca at 8 a.m. and continue along the scenic Battery Park waterfront. The route includes meaningful sites such as “Point Thank You,” where New Yorkers cheered rescue and recovery workers bound for Ground Zero, and which serves as a reminder of how people came together after 9/11.
The route concludes with Community Day near the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, along Greenwich Street between Albany and Fulton streets. The free event, which does not require registration, is open to the public and offers activities for all ages, including a kid zone and live music performances.
5K Run/Walk participants will receive a 25 percent discount on Museum admission, valid all day after the event. Those who present a 9/11 Memorial & Museum 5K Run/Walk bib will receive special promotions and discounts at participating lower Manhattan restaurants and retailers.
