Since the beginning of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum 5K Run/Walk and Community Day, more than 1,500 Stars of HOPE have been shared around the world.
This year, Stars of HOPE has been asked to place stars around the construction fence of the 9/11 Memorial Glade. They will serve as a beacon of HOPE during the final stages of construction before the Glade’s dedication on May 30. Consider sponsoring a Star of HOPE to help us reach our goal of 500; each will be presented to 9/11 health advocates and providers, family members, first responders, and lower Manhattan residents.
Construction on the 9/11 Memorial Glade began in fall 2018 to create a dedicated space to honor the ongoing sacrifice of rescue, recovery and relief workers, and the survivors and members of the broader lower Manhattan community, who are sick or have died from exposure to toxins at the World Trade Center site in the aftermath of 9/11. The Glade will also recognize the courage, selflessness, and perseverance of the men and women of the rescue and recovery effort. You can learn more about the project on the 9/11 Memorial & Museum website.
These Stars of HOPE will be our collective way to say thank you and let all those affected by 9/11 illnesses know they are not forgotten.
Together we can respond with HOPE and continue to show WE STAND UNITED.
