_ The 2nd Annual Patriot Day 5K:
2nd Annual Patriot Day 5K
And 1 Mile Walk
“On this day… 21 years (September 10th) ago, 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighter, 60 police officers and eight paramedics went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. None of them saw past 10:00 a.m. Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.” —Unknown

BENEFITS LOCAL FIRST RESPONDER and JROTC
Patriot Day is held worldwide on September 11. On the direction of the President, the flag should be flown at half-staff as a mark of respect to those who died on September 11, 2001. All proceeds from the race will go to benefit JROTC and local first responder charities.
Our event unites all individuals and community.
