Remembering 9/11 5K
Last year on September 11th we gathered with many of you, our community, and climbed stairs or walked a 5K in honor of those Heroes lost on that fateful day in 2001.
This year we want to do more and we would once again love it if you all would join us!
In the past year two of our own, our Local Heroes, were diagnosed with cancer. We want to give to them in addition to honoring the Fallen Heroes from 9-11-2001.
Once again we will have the option to climb 2,071 stairs or walk a 5K. We are doing a registration for our event this year and ALL proceeds will be divided and donated to the two Local Heroes!
So please, join us in Remembering the Fallen to Support the Present!
...watch for more to come!
