About This Activity

This is a fast 5K through the scenic farmland of Lancaster County. Both the 5K and the 1 mile run/walk will begin and end at the Worship Center.

On May 10, 2014, the “NEVER FORGET” 5K will be held at the Worship Center, 2384 New Holland Pike in Lancaster, Pennsylvania 17601. This annual 5K run/ 1 mile walk were created by America’s 911 Foundation to sustain awareness of the events on September 11, 2001. Over 2,996 individuals and first responders perished.

 For those that are too young to remember these tragedies, this 5K run/1 mile walk emphasizes the importance of the First Responders in our everyday lives. First responders will be at the race to show ambulances, fire trucks, and other first response vehicles.

 Each runner or walker will receive a peel off name tag of an individual that perished on 911 to wear as a representation of that person, so they will not be forgotten. The name tag will be placed on each runner or walker’s shirt over the heart area.
