After much discussion with local first responder agencies, we have made the decision that for the health and safety of our community, the 2021 9/11 Heroes Run will be postponed until Saturday, November 20th at 5 PM. We continue our mission of remembering the sacrifices made on that tragic day 20 years ago and raising awareness for our local heroes here at home.



The 9/11 Heroes Run unites communities internationally with the goal to never forget the sacrifices of the heroes of September 11th and the wars since: veteran, first responder, civilian and military.

Join us to raise awareness and honor the fallen.
