Hello Team WWJ. We hope this message finds you well. This year the 20th anniversary is upon us and it’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years. We wanted to let you know of some events to remember that day and honor those we lost then and since.
· On Saturday, September 11th at 11 am there will be a memorial ceremony at the Manalapan Town Hall 9-11 memorial located on 120 Route 522, Manalapan.
· Before the memorial, there will be a Mass of Memorial and Remembrance at Saint Thomas More on Gordon Corner Road beginning at 8:30 AM. See https://web.moremercy.org for details.
· Finally, on Sunday, October 3rd at 8:00 AM, the Gordons Corner Fire Company will be holding the 1st Annual First Responder 5K Walk/Run to benefit the first responders and emergency personnel. See https://gcfire.org/5k-run for details and sign up.
We hope you will be able to join us at these events. Wear your WWJ shirts proudly. We have done much over these 20 years to never forget and we hope it will continue. Thank you. God bless you all, and God bless the United States of America.
The Walk with Joe Committee
Remember that you can still support our charitable efforts through our annual golf outing in April and at www.walkwithjoe.com
The Walk honors Patrick "Joe" Driscoll, a hero aboard Flight 93 along with the other passengers and crew, Chris Gray who worked for Cantor Fitzgerald, and Tom McCann who lost his life responding to the scene while working for the NYC Fire Department. To honor all their memory and give comfort to all who lost someone on that tragic day, we will continue to remember their sacrifice through our annual golf outing. If you still want to support the golf outing and the walk, you may do so at our web site. Thank you.
Over $400,000 has been donated. All of the proceeds from the walk, including monies raised from participants and sponsors are donated to numerous charities. Organizations which have benefited include: The Samaritan Center food bank, The Freehold Open Door food bank, The Monmouth County Child Advocacy Center, The Brennan Stands Alone Organization, American Recreational Military Services (ARMS), Monmouth Battlefield State Park, the RJM Foundation (a special needs youth organization), The Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville PA, The Monmouth County Mount Mitchell Memorial Park, The University of West Virginia Christopher Gray Memorial Scholarship Fund, youth athletic programs, and numerous non-profit organizations serving the area with humanitarian aid and programs.
Memorial Scholarships through the Freehold Regional High School District have been established to honor the memories of Chris Gray and Tom McCann.
