Patriot Day 5K and one-mile walk – 9/11 20 year anniversary
“On this day… 20 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
2021 Patriot Day 5K and one-mile walk honoring those lost in 9/11 takes place at the beautiful Pleasanton River Park, Pleasanton, Texas on Saturday evening September 11, 2021. On this 20th anniversary of 9/11, plan to bring your whole family to the Pleasanton River Park for a family-friendly fun event that honors first responders and those lost in 9/11. Patriot Day 5K and one-mile walk is a family, first responder, vet and pet friendly event hosted by the City of Pleasanton and the Pleasanton Express. The Pleasanton River Park features a splash pad, zipline, skate park, and interactive playground with all accessibility levels.
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. Everyone is WELCOME - runners, walkers, first responders, families, healthcare staff and companies, service clubs and organizations, running clubs, students, we mean everyone! This year's run/walk will take place rain or shine. (Note: If severe weather conditions deem it is unsafe to travel to the park, we will send out an email and post on social media.)
This event will offer FREE sausages on a stick, beverages, entertainment, ceremonial celebration, team awards, and more.
