2014 First Responder Nomination Process for Trip to NYC Now Open

July 22, 2014

The Michigan Remembers 9-11 Fund will be hosting its Run to Remember 5K run/walk on September 6th to remember those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, including 19 with Michigan connections, and to honor and celebrate the brave men and women across Michigan who protect and serve our communities and nation on a daily basis. Funds raised by this race support our programming, which includes sending two first responders to represent Michigan at the Stephen Siller National Tunnel to Towers Run in New York City.

If you are interested in the opportunity to be selected as a representative from Michigan, please complete the nomination form by August 11, 2014. You must be an active first responder (police, fire, or ems) in the state of Michigan or currently enlisted in the U.S. Military/Michigan National Guard/Reserves to be eligible. You must also be available for travel the dates of September 27, 2014 to September 29, 2014.

The Michigan Remembers 9-11 Fund board members, executive director, and other members of the nomination committee will carefully evaluate all submissions. They will select the two nominees who are felt to best embody the spirit of selflessness, community service, and honor as those who answered the call on 9/11/01. Only those who are selected as finalists will be contacted.

The two selected nominees will be honored during our Run to Remember event with an all-expense paid weekend to NYC to compete in the national race to be held in late September. The trip includes airfare, hotel, race registration, and other selected travel arrangements.

Questions about the Fund or this application can be directed to Megan Henriksen at michiganremembers@gmail.com or (517) 333-6984.
