On September 11, 2001, Jeremy Glick and his fellow passengers fought back against the terrorists aboard Flt. 93 to prevent their plane from hitting its intended Washington DC target saving countless lives. Jeremy's Heroes was created to honor his legacy and teach the values many heroes of 9/11 displayed: teamwork, discipline, courage and compassion. Jeremy's Heroes identifies at-risk children in need, provide assistance for participating in sports and leadership programs and set and promote examples of excellence that help children to realize the "hero within." The Race To Remember virtual 5K will unify us as we celebrate and remember the many heroic lives lost while raising funding for Jeremy's Heroes after-school sports and service programming.
