Run to Remember

Break a sweat and raise money for the city's police foundation and fire department with the Run to Remember 5K. Sponsored by St. Joseph Medical Center, the race honors those who lost their lives on 9/11 and those who risk their lives as police officers and firefighters now. Katie O'Malley and Terps basketball coach Gary Williams will speak at the starting line and hand out awards at the finish line.

Music, food, drinks and beer will be on hand at the finish line in Federal Hill Park. The race begins at 8:46 a.m. Sunday, the time the first plane hit the World Trade Center four years ago.
