In less than three hours, a total of 2,977 lives were lost in New York City, Washington D.C. and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in a coordinated terrorist attack. For those old enough to remember, the images are forever seared into our collective conscious.
In remembrance of the lives lost and the heroic acts of so many on that fateful morning, 207 UPSers from 43 states and nine countries joined as one global team to participate in the 9/11 Promise, a run/bike/walk event dedicated to honoring and raising funds for children of first responders and military personnel who answered the call with great courage.
“I’m so proud to be a part of this journey to remember the lives lost in the 9/11 attacks,” said Chief Corporate Affairs Officer Laura Lane. “It was an honor to run alongside all of the UPSers who participated around the world.”
