Volunteers needed for Run for the Fallen, run registration open

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – Volunteers are still needed as the Wright-Patterson community continues to honor those who perished in the 9/11 attacks with the fourth annual Run for the Fallen scheduled for September 11, 2017.

Volunteers are needed to help set up markers for the 5k run and 2k walk, set up tables, fill water jugs, set up cups and hand them out the morning of the event.

Volunteers who would like to speak about their 9/11 experiences during the event are also needed. They will speak in-between announcements of each significant moment of 9/11 at the same time it occurred in 2001.

The event is free and open to all Wright-Patt military and civilian employees and their families. To register, use Internet Explorer to sign up at https://cs2.eis.af.mil/sites/21146/CGOC/Events/Run%20for%20the%20Fallen/site/index.htm

Run for the Fallen pays tribute to the nearly 3,000 people who died in the attacks on the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon and onboard Flight 93, which crashed outside Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The event averages more than 1,500 people in attendance each year.

Anyone interested in volunteering should contact 1st Lt. Robert Boehm at robert.boehm.2@us.af.mil.
