16th Annual Garden of Reflection 5k

Sunday, September 15, 2019

The Garden of Reflection 9-11 Memorial was created to remember and honor all 2,973 killed on September 11, 2001—including the 18 from Bucks County. It is situated in Memorial Park amid the natural beauty of historic Bucks County farmland in Lower Makefield Township. It is the Official Pennsylvania Memorial to the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The 5K Run/Walk, now in it's 16th year, raises money for the endowment to preserve the memorial for future generations. Thanks to our generous sponsors and participants, this race has raised over $190,000 toward this effort.
