Returned Peace Corps Volunteers – please join Peace Corps staff and Volunteers past and future as we pitch in to encourage volunteerism in honor of those lost on 9/11.
Join us on April 21, 2013 for the 9/11 Memorial 5K Run/Walk and Family Day!
The Peace Corps and RPCVs from the Greater New York City area have been invited to volunteer at this year’s Family Day. This free community event will include activities for all ages and food and refreshments. It will also offer information about the National September 11 Memorial & Museum as well as ways to learn more about volunteer opportunities in the spirit of the National 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance.
The date of the Run/Walk and Family Day – April 21 – marks the anniversary President Barack Obama signed into law legislation making 9/11 a day of service and volunteerism in the memory of the victims of the 2001 attacks.
9/11 Memorial 5K Run/Walk & Family Day
Sunday, April 21st
Shift Times: 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.; 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Register no later than FRIDAY, APRIL 5th!
The Run/Walk and Family Day will take place in lower Manhattan, taking participants on a historic route passing important places that are part of the 9/11 story. The route will also symbolize how we came together to support one another in the aftermath of 9/11, including those Peace Corps staff and RPCVs who were familiar with the former Peace Corps New York Regional Office which was then located in Building 6 of the World Trade Center.
All participants will receive a free t-shirt the day of the event. Want to take on a leadership role? We are looking for a few individuals who would be interested in being our Team Leaders for the two shifts. This will include a training that will be held Monday, April 11th from 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm. Details will be sent to those interested (you may indicate this on your registration form).
Feel free to contact Andrea Fellows, Public Affairs Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope you will consider joining us to show Peace Corps support for the National September 11 Memorial & Museum!
