Families to Run in the New York Marathon to Benefit the Friends 

On November 6, 2022, 10 Flight 93 family members will run the New York City Marathon.  This year runners are sponsored by the Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial who will be the benefactor of the funds raised.  The Friends organization plans to put the funds raised toward the enhancements to the Western Overlook Project at the Memorial site.  The Western Overlook is where family members were brought for their first look at the crash site in September 2001.  The area has quite a bit of historical significance not only as the area where families had their first look at the crash site, adjacent to this area is where the crime scene investigation was conducted. 

Visit Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial Fundraising Page for 2022 TCS New York City Marathon Fundraising (hakuapp.com) to help reach the goal of $25,000!

September 11, 2001

Smoke rising from crash

September 11, 2001 began as an ordinary, late-summer day. But, in less than two hours' time, this seemingly routine day was transformed when nineteen terrorists boarded and hijacked four airplanes to attack America.
