Have direct impact on the futures of the children of first responders and service members by joining the 9.11 Promise’s mission.

Support the Future

The 9.11 Promise is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is run entirely by volunteers who are dedicated to our mission. 100% of our proceeds support our scholarship and fundraising event efforts.

Our Promise

The 9.11 Promise began as an event to honor those that were on the front lines during the attacks on the Pentagon, the World Trade Center, and United Flight 93 on September 11th, 2001. We were inspired by the brave and selfless actions of our first responders and military on that awful day, so we established the 9.11 Promise in 2016 to help support the children of those who were affected by the aftermath.

The Event

Our signature event consists of athletes from all backgrounds coming together on September 9th to run from Washington, D.C. to Ground Zero, or to bike from D.C. to the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA. Athletes are supported by various fire houses along their respective 200+ mile routes, ultimately finishing their journey on September 11th. To participate, athletes raise money for the 9.11 Promise Scholarship Program, which awards post-secondary scholarships to children of first responders and military service members. Today, our mission has expanded to honor all first responders and military personnel who continue to serve and sacrifice for our community and country. Our promise is to provide scholarships to the children of disabled or deceased first responders and veterans, to recognize the service of their parents, and ensure that those children have a chance to succeed despite losing a major pillar of support.
