From the Queens Gazette:
On the weekend before the 12th anniversary of the worst terrorist act to ever occur on American soil, St. Michael’s Cemetery in East Elmhurst held a unique tribute as part of its annual 9/11 memorial service to those who perished and to the first responders who continue to fall to this day, with its second annual memorial run.
More than 50 participants ran a two-mile lap “Remember Me Run” around the cemetery grounds on September 7 to help raise money and awareness for the Christopher Santora Scholarship Fund, which helps support the children and descendants of men and women lost at the World Trade Center during the attacks, and in the years that followed, from working at the site, which became known as “The Pile”.
Our 9/11 2 Mile Remember me Run will take place on Saturday September 7, 2013 At 2pm. All funds raised will be donated to the Christopher Santora Scholarship Fund.
Sign-in will begin starting at 10:00 am in the All Soul’s Crematory building. Please sign in early as shirts are not guaranteed and only while supplies last.
There is a $25 registration fee for all participants.
Please register online.
