ABOUT THE RACE
Each year we come together as a community to remember the loved ones that we have lost. We start the day with a 5K Remembrance Race (a Fun Run for All) from the Roxbury Memorial to the Breezy Memorial. It is a Fun Run for All ages - Run, Jog, Walk, or Stroll. We have a Celebration for everyone afterwards with food, drink, rides, musical entertainment and an awards ceremony.
The race starts at 10AM with the party immediately following at the ballfield - Band, Food, Music, Rides
Donations and contributions are very much appreciated. Together your donations have helped the community with The Caffrey Conroy Learning Center, School Scholarship Money for the Kids, CYO, the local Volunteer Fire Departments, the 9/11 Memorial Fund.
We are overwhelmingly excited to continue this tradition. We know it is in the early stages of development but with the love and support from all of you this will continue to grow into an amazing day and tradition for our community.
Thank you all so much for your support. God Bless Breezy Point.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZER
Brian “Blinky” Flanigan is a year-round resident who was raised on Reid Ave. Since the age of five he has grown to love this wonderful neighborhood with all his heart and soul. Having served on the 9/11 Committee at its inception, Brian brought great pride and gratitude in helping to bring the community together on Family Day each year at the ballfield and has had huge success in raising funds to help the beautiful memorials that were built on the bayside in Breezy Point and Roxbury. As the years have passed, none of us have forgotten those that were taken from us, nor will we ever, and an event like this will help us to keep their memories alive, as well as teach the younger generations of Breezy Point about these amazing people. This fundraiser will contribute to the continued maintenance and up-keep of the 9/11 Memorial expenses that accrue throughout the year.
