The 9/11 Promise Run began simply as an event to remember and honor lives lost, first responders and military. Over time, the founder of the 9/11 Promise Run wanted to have a greater impact, one that would not only honor first responders and military, but to provide financial assistance to the next generation of those who safeguard our local communities and country.
In 2018, the 9/11 Promise Run established 501c3 status (EIN: 82-4072961). As a non-profit, our mission is to provide scholarships to the children of first responders and military who have either died or become injured (to include PTSD) and are not able to return to work. In 2019, we will begin raising those funds! Our first scholarships will be awarded in the school year 2020/21.
THE JOURNEY OF REMEMBRANCE & HONOR IN 3 DAYS
The 9/11 Promise Run, established in 2016, is an event that is being held to keep a promise that was made in 2001 when our country, the United States of America, was attacked. Many lives were lost and we continue to deal with the aftermath. This event honors the lives lost, the emergency personnel who responded with the greatest of courage, and our military who continue to fight for this country's safety and freedom, here and abroad.
