Bike Rider Pedals to Honor Classmates Lost On 9/11

5 Boro Bike Tour
For the first time, the TD Bank 5 Boro Bike Tour is offering participants the opportunity to "Ride For A Reason." Participant Anthony Saggese has 28 reasons - his fellow alumni at Xavierian High School in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, who were lost on 9/11. Anthony is raising funds for VOICES in honor of these classmates when he participates in the 42 mile bike tour on May 1st. The school honors their fallen classmates each year on September 11th and has a tribute and eternal flame on the grounds of the school. Anthony said that he is reaching out to his fellow alumni to support him on his ride for VOICES. If you want to support his ride, Click Here.

9/11 Living Memorial Workshop Held at Sachem Library

Sachem Workshop
Voices of September 11th sponsored a 9/11 Living Memorial Workshop at the Sachem Public Library last week. Family members and friends of those who perished in the attacks were offered the opportunity to assemble digital memorials of their loved ones at one of many similar workshops held annually in the Tri-State area and beyond by the nonprofit group.

The organization sponsors these one of a kind workshops as an integral part of their initiative. The 9/11 Living Memorial Project is a web-based archive that honors the nearly 3,000 lives lost and chronicles firsthand accounts of rescue workers and survivors. More.
