9/11 Garden of Reflection Virtual 5k

September 11, 2015 ~ Here's the second of three total 9/11 virtual races for this weekend. My mom, sister and I headed to Kansas City, MO to get ready for my cousin's wedding weekend and stopped by Independence Mall to knock this virtual 5k out!

The Garden of Reflection 9-11 Memorial was created to remember and honor all 2,973 killed on September 11, 2001. 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 12th 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 $150,000 toward this effort.
This year the 5k Run/Walk will be held on Sunday morning, September 13, 2015. It will start and end near the Garden of Reflection 9-11 Memorial. And like other years, all participants will receive a custom designed, 2015 race-shirt.
NEW in 2015 is 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 11 – Monday, September 14, 2015, take up the challenge and run or walk 1 mile, 5K, 5 miles, or as many miles as you can. 

When we visit Pennsylvania I would like to visit this memorial.....

We will never forget.
