About This Activity

The annual 9/11 Memorial 5K Run~Walk & Kids Fun Run started in 2011, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11/01 as a way to fundraise for the Stephen G. Ward Memorial Scholarship Fund.  It has turned into a healing event for our family and the community at large.  It is an uplighting way to honor and remember Steve, and all those lost on that tragic day.

Steve was young, vibrant and ambitious when he was needlessly taken from us in the Attacks on America on September 11, 2001.

 He was climbing a promising career ladder as an equities accountant at Cantor Fitzgerald on the 101st floor of the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

 Steve was a funny, charismatic and loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend. He is a symbol of what America lost that tragic day.  He was one of the best and brightest.

 The Stephen Gordon Ward Memorial Scholarship Fund was created to honor and remember Steve, while helping other bright, ambitious students realize their dreams.

We hope you will support our efforts and come out and run or walk with us.
