Breezy Point will hold a series of ways to commemorate the 18th anniversary of September 11, 2001. From a run, to a paddle out, a Mass and ceremonies, Breezy Point will show that they can never forget. The community will begin its remembrance ceremonies on Saturday, September 7, starting with the 4th Annual 9/11 Remembrance Race. This 5K run/walk goes from the Roxbury 9/11 Memorial to the Breezy Point Memorial and culminates in an after-party at the Breezy Point ball field featuring the Hell or High Water band, rides, food, drinks, an award ceremony and more. The race starts at 10 a.m. and the party starts at noon. This event helps to raise money for the upkeep of the Roxbury and Breezy Point 9/11 Memorials. With this comes registration fees of $35 for adults, $15 for those under 21, plus fees if you just want to participate in the after-party. To register for the race, head to www.bpremembers911.com.
