A Run to Remember was created as an event
to remind us of the men and women that lost their lives that
horrible day. From the men and women in and around the towers of NY,
in a field in Pennsylvania or at the US Pentagon, we remember the
sacrifices that you faced by an evil force. The
Lawrenceville Police Department decided to host this day to not only
remember our fallen Heroes, but to expand our future and the
dangers that may lie ahead.
"Mankind must put an end
to war or war will put an end to mankind."
