About the 9/11 Freedom 5K

The Run Nine/Eleven Freedom 5k continues a tradition started by American military bases around the world that run/walk a 5k on the anniversary of 9/11. The Freedom 5k encourages participants from across the country including military, first responders, civilians and their families to run or walk 5k at anytime during the month of September. This is a virtual run so you can participate solo, invite a friend, or host a group run on the day and time of your choice with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Operation: Care and Comfort. Whatever you do, finish what you start.
