Go The Extra Mile In Your City
02 May 2019
Congratulations to all our runners in New York!
The winning cause with the fastest average time on race night was EDUCATION. Over the next year, 9/11 Memorial & Museum will implement their educational programs with support from The Extra Mile funding.
9/11 Museum & Memorial educational programs and resources help young children, parents, students and service members understand the story of what happened on 9/11. They also share the story of the profound human capacity to care for one another and to recognize our common humanity.
The Extra Mile helps participants of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay contribute to their city in a bigger, better way. We are delighted to be working with 9/11 Memorial & Museum as The Extra Mile Partner in 2019.
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center bears solemn witness to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. Respecting this site made sacred through loss, the Memorial & Museum remembers and honors the nearly 3,000 victims of these attacks and all those who risked their lives to save others. It further recognizes the thousands who survived and all who manifested extraordinary compassion and leadership in the wake of the attacks. Demonstrating the consequences of terrorism on individual lives and its impact on communities at the local, national, and international levels, the Memorial & Museum attests to the triumph of human dignity over human depravity and affirms an unwavering commitment to the fundamental value of human life.
May the lives remembered, the deeds recognized, and the spirit reawakened be eternal beacons, which reaffirm respect for life, strengthen our resolve to preserve freedom, and inspire an end to hatred, ignorance and intolerance.
For the 2019 New York relay, a minimum of $20,000 will be donated to 9/11 Memorial & Museum. These funds will be used to create a year-long project to address the winning cause.
