The 2017 Morrisville 9/11 Memorial 5k will be held in honor and in memory of all of the first responders and civilians that lost their lives during the Terror attacks at the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001. This race will be held on Sunday September 10, 2017 on Town hall drive. It will begin in front of Fire Station 1 with a short opening ceremony followed by the start of the 5k. The event is open to all ages and is sure to be a lot of fun. First responders are encouraged, but not required, to wear their gear to show their determination as those that day did as they ascended the Twin Towers. All first responders that do participate will wear names of a fallen firefighter, police officer or EMT that perished in the line of duty. Civilian attendees who participate are also encouraged to bare the name or photo of someone they knew as well as we remember. Come out and enjoy the fun as we remember the lives of those lost.
Additional donations can be given on the registration page. All proceeds from the 5k will be given to The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund. The purpose of the Fund is to provide education assistance for postsecondary study to financially needy dependents of those people killed or permanently disabled as a result of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, and during the rescue activities relating to those attacks. For more information about The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund, go to familiesoffreedom.org.
Awards will be given to the overall male & female racers, as well as the overall male & female racers wearing their respective fire turnout gear, police uniforms, and EMS uniforms.
Parking will be available near the start/finish area of the race. Additional parking will be available off-site with shuttle service before and after the race. Additional parking information in regards to parking locations will be available soon.
