New 9/11 Memorial
Tradition is Born
By Katie McFadden
Fifteen years later, but nev-
er forgotten. It’s been so long
that children who weren’t
even born when the planes
hit the World Trade Center,
will now be learning about
what happened that day in
history class. Brian Flani-
gan of Breezy Point wants to
ensure that today’s children
and future generations un-
derstand what happened on
September 11, 2001 and to
continue to honor the lives
of those who were lost, espe-
cially the many locals. He’s
starting a new tradition to
keep their memory alive. The
First Annual Breezy Point Re-
membrance Race is Saturday,
September 10.
Flanigan’s best friend was
Pete
Mulligan.
Mulligan,
along with Mike Andrews,
Charlie Heeran, Chris Grady
and Matt Burke all worked
for the same desk with Cantor
Fitzgerald in the World Trade
Center. Flanigan also once
taught at a school in Broad
Channel along with firefight-
er Richie Allen. They were
just a few of the more than
3,000 people that were killed
in the terrorist attacks 15
years ago. For the small com-
munities of Breezy Point and
Rockaway, the loss of life was
tremendous. For those who
lived it, it’s impossible to for-
get, but Flanigan hopes that
new generations also come to
understand what happened
that day and will continue to
honor those who died. To do
that, he’s bringing families
together for a new memori-
al event in Breezy Point. As
a runner himself, who ran
the NYC Marathon in 2011,
Flanigan thought it would be
a nice idea to hold a memori-
al race between the Roxbury
and Breezy Point 9/11 Memo-
rials.
Breezy Point’s First Annu-
al 9/11 Memorial Race is a
5K family-fun run will start
at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sep-
tember 10. There will be 18
trophies given for the top
runners in different age cate-
gories, but those who want to
walk the route are also wel-
come. Online registration is
open through September 8
at
www.bpremembers911.
com, but there will be day-of
registration starting at 8:30
a.m. in Roxbury. Registra-
tion is $35 per person or $15
for those under 21. There are
also options to just partici-
pate in the after-party from
12 p.m. to 4 p.m. To bring
attention to the local memo-
rials, the race will begin at
the Roxbury 9/11 Memori-
al and will continue up the
main road to Breezy Point,
ending at the Breezy Point
9/11 Memorial. The after
