2019 will mark the 18th anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks.
The extraordinary attacks on September 11, 2001 in New York City and Washington DC, and the downing of a hijacked plane in Pennsylvania, shook the nation and had global consequences. But for the people living in the towns and cities where the attacks actually occurred, the day has a particularly powerful resonance.
What Happened: Four jet planes were hijacked on September 11 2001 by nineteen Al Queda suicide bombers who were terrorist operatives. The targets were iconic. Two planes were intentionally crashed into New York City’s World Trade Center North and South Towers, causing their collapse. A third plane crashed into the Pentagon in Washington. A fourth plane crashed in Bucks County in Western Pennsylvania, when passengers fought the highjackers for control of the cockpit.
Over three thousand civilians lost their lives on September 11. Millions more, including thousands of firsts responders, were impacted by the events of that day, in ways both measurable and immeasurable. Many suffered shock and trauma, the loss of loved ones, businesses destroyed. First responders and rescue team members also suffered ongoing health consequences from working at the site of the World Trade Center.
The entire nation mourns the victims of September 11th, 2001. But because history happens at a very specific time and place, the sites of the attacks hold a special significance.
Texas Firewalkers will honor those 343 FDNY Firefighters that passed away on 9-11-2001 by having participants carrying all 343 accountability tags for the FDNY firefighters. We will also honor the 2018 Texas First Responder Line of Duty Deaths. We are trying to fill all 343 spots this year and we need your support to accomplish this by registering to climb 110 flight of stairs. The event is open to First Responders, Fitness Clubs, Organizations and the general public.

Paul Davis is proud to support the American Cancer Society at Relay for Life of Ellwood City. Relay For Life is a grass roots, community-based team event benefiting the American Cancer Society.
Opening Ceremony Time to get started. We kick off the event by honoring everyone who’s been affected by cancer and everyone who has contributed to the success of this year’s Relay season.
Survivor/Caregiver Walk Survivors and Caregivers are the heart and soul of Relay For Life events. We honor their strength and courage with every step they take. It doesn’t matter if you were diagnosed 10 days ago or 10 years ago, you can walk while everyone gathers together to cheer you on.
Luminaria Ceremony During this ceremony we represent everyone touched by cancer with a Luminaria. Each light represents a life—a life taken by cancer, a survivor of cancer, or a support for a person still fighting the disease. It’s a powerful demonstration that gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers comfort and hope.
Closing Ceremony Our closing ceremony is the time to commit to take action and help lead the fight for a world free from cancer. It’s a time to celebrate what we’ve accomplished together and a time to unify for the work that needs to be done moving forward.
Come join us for a great fundraising day as 12 teams cook over 700lbs of crawfish while competing for the Best Crawfish title. Teams will also battle for Cook’s Choice and Best Showmanship.

This is also Pratt’s birthday weekend so you know this entire weekend will be a must see….
Come help Texas Firewalkers raise money during this great event!

We invite you to join us in our efforts to support the MS Society of Canada. Multiple sclerosis can strike anyone at any moment, and Canadians have one of the highest rates of MS in the world. On average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with this unpredictable disease every day. We don’t know what causes MS, and we don’t have a cure. Yet.
We’re participating in MS Walk because we want to support our friends, family members, neighbours and co-workers who are affected by MS.
Join our team as we challenge MS and help empower more people affected by the disease to live their best lives. This is a day for the community of Toronto to come together and support a great cause with one goal in mind, to end MS! Donations will support our friends and families in Toronto living with Multiple Sclerosis and by continuing to support the best MS research in the world taking place right here in Canada.
If you are unable to join us at MS Walk, donate to our team’s fundraising today. Your donation will help continue to fund leading-edge research and support programs that improve the quality of life for people affected by MS.
