Welles Crowther, a 24-year-old equities trader, came to be known as "The Man in the Red Bandanna" after losing his life while saving at least a dozen people at the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001.
This year, the National September 11 Memorial and Museum is holding its 5K Walk/Run on Sunday, April 27, 2013, in Lower Manhattan. The proceeds will support the 9/11 Memorial and the 9/11 Memorial Museum. The 5K will take participants on a historic route passing important places that are part of the 9/11 story.
The Run/Walk will start from Pier 26 at 8 a.m. Following the 5K Run/Walk, Family Day will be held between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Greenwich Street between Cortland Street and Liberty Street. It will include entertainment, meaningful activities for all ages, food and refreshments. Registration is not required for the Family Day portion -- it is free to attend.
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center is a non-profit corporation with the mission to raise funds for, program, own, and operate the memorial and museum at the World Trade Center site. All proceeds raised by Team Red Bandanna will go to supporting the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. Please join us in the fundraising effort for this organization.
"May the lives remembered, the deeds recognized, and the spirit reawakened be eternal beacons, which reaffirm respect for life, strengthen our resolve to preserve freedom, and inspire an end to hatred, ignorance and intolerance."
