9/11 Promise Run

THE STORY:

The 9/11 Promise Run, established in 2016, is an event that is being held to keep a promise that was made 16 years ago when our country, the United States of America, was attacked. Many lives were lost and we continue to deal with the aftermath. This event will honor the lives of those lost, the emergency personnel who responded with the greatest of courage, the folks today that continue to fight for this country’s safety and freedom, here and abroad, and the children and families who were directly impacted.

In 2016, a team of seven runners from different backgrounds came together and ran from the Pentagon to Ground Zero while raising over $23K all of which went to two charities, Tuesday's Children and the FealGood Foundation. During this run, they connected and formed friendships with local fire departments, police departments and community members. They remembered and they honored.

For 2017, relay teams consisting of 8-10 people will once again run over the course of three days starting near the Pentagon on Saturday, 09/09/2017 and finishing at Ground Zero on Monday, 09/11/2017. Each team will cover approximately 245 miles. All teams must average a 10-minute mile pace to ensure that the mileage is covered. The 9/11 Promise Run is not a race – but an event that is being held for a bigger cause. There will be no winner – or second place or third place. Rather, two charities will reap the benefits of fundraising that will occur between April 1 and October 1, 2017. Each runner will experience a journey that will entail running for an amazing cause, a weekend of fun with family and friends, and the opportunity to never forget and to always keep that promise.

There is no registration fee or participation fee for the 911 Promise Run. However, from April 1, 2017 to October 1, 2017 each individual will commit to raising a minimum of $1000 that will go directly to the two charities that have been chosen to benefit from this event.
