2018 Run to Remember

Please join us for our 8th annual Run to Remember to be held on Saturday, September 8th, 2018 in downtown Lansing at Wentworth Park (site of the Remembrance Memorial). This event is 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.

The race will start and end at Wentworth Park in downtown Lansing. This is located at the northeast corner of Grand Avenue and Michigan Avenue, across from the Radisson. The course runs along the Lansing River Trail, ending by the 9/11 memorial in Wentworth Park. This is a family (and pet) friendly event and all are encouraged to attend.

Funds raised by this event will support the programming of the Michigan Remembers 9-11 Fund. This includes sending one Michigan first responder to New York City for an all-expense paid weekend to compete in the Stephen Siller Foundation National Tunnel to Towers 5K run/walk held at the end of September.

Other programming that the proceeds will benefit include a 9/11 reflection essay contest for high school students, first responder recognition programs, and 9/11/01 victim remembrance efforts.

Registration for the 5k is $30.00 per person while children 13 and under are free. There is a 50% discount provided to active duty and veteran military and public safety (fire, police, and EMS) personnel by using the coupon code “hero.”

The overall winner of the run will receive a certificate good for 4 tickets to any 2018 Lansing Lugnuts game! Runners up will receive a gift card to Playmakers.
