NEW DATE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17th
The Garden of Reflection 9-11 Memorial was created to remember and honor all 2,973 killed on September 11, 2001—incuding the 18 from Bucks County. It is situated in Memorial Park amid the natural beauty of historic Bucks County farmland in Lower Makefield Township. It is the Official Pennsylvania Memorial to the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
The 5K Run/Walk, now in it's 13th year, raises money for the endowment to preserve the memorial for future generations. Thanks to our generous sponsors and participants, this race has raised over $165,000 toward this effort.
This year, the 15th anniversary of 9/11, the 5k Run/Walk will be held on Saturday morning, September 17, 2016
. It will start and end near the Garden of Reflection 9-11 Memorial. And like other years, all participants will receive a unique, custom designed, 2016 race-shirt.
Again in 2016 we will also hold the 9-11 Garden of Reflection Virtual Challenge. If you can't make it to the run, or are looking for an additional challenge, then check this out. From Friday, September 16 – Monday, September 19, 2016
