I am running the World Trade Center Run To Remember with my daughter Caity on September 5, 2010 and we’d appreciate your support in the form of a donation to Families of September 11 (FOS11), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
The 2nd Annual World Trade Center Run to Remember (WTCRTR) will be a celebration of the lives of those lost on September 11, 2001.
This event will offer a great opportunity for all people who were affected by the events of 9-11 to come together to remember each victim, while running, or walking, around beautiful Governors Island, in the heart of New York Harbor.
Families of September 11, Inc. (FOS11) was founded in October 2001 by families of those who died in the September 11 terrorist attacks. Membership is open to anyone affected by the events of September 11, be they family members, survivors, responders, or others as well as those who support our mission. The group has two goals:
- To support families and children by offering updated information on issues of interest, access to resources, relevant articles, and advocacy to raise awareness about the effects of terrorism and public trauma.
- To champion domestic and international policies that respond to the threat of terrorism including support for the 9/11 Commission Recommendations, and to reach out to victims of terror worldwide.
