EDINBURG, Texas – In remembrance of the fallen heroes who lost their lives, the City of Edinburg will host the 3rd Annual 9/11 Patriot Day of Remembrance 5K Memorial Run/Walk. Set to take place on Saturday, September 9, 2023, this poignant event stands as a testament to the unwavering spirit and unity that emerged from the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
The 5K Memorial Run/Walk not only pays homage to the fallen but also serves as a symbol of resilience and solidarity. The race begins at 7:30 a.m. at Edinburg Fire Station 1, located at 212 W. McIntyre Street, in honor of the first responders that arrived on scene that fateful day in New York City, and those that continue to serve the community of Edinburg.
A free Honorary Walk, a total of 911 steps, will also be held at 9:11 a.m. at the same location for anyone interested in paying their respects to the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice 22 years ago. This year’s event will also include the inaugural ‘Shawn Snider First Responder Award’ for the initial first responder to cross the finish line, in memory of the Edinburg Fire Department’s late fire chief.
Packet pickup will be held on Friday, September 8, at the Edinburg Parks and Recreation facility (315 Mark S. Pena Drive) between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., and on race day at Fire Station 1 from 6:30 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. For more information, call (956) 381-5631.
