UT Army ROTC to host Run to Remember Sept. 11

The University of Toledo’s Army ROTC Program will host the Run to Remember, a 5K run and walk on Main Campus, Tuesday, Sept. 11. 

After the race, a moment of silence with chimes from University Hall’s bell tower will occur at 8:46 a.m., the time when the attacks began in 2001.  

“We are planning to make this an annual event. It’s important that we never forget,” Master Sgt. Johnnie Fields, UT senior military instructor and commandant of cadets, said. “Bringing together the UT and Toledo communities makes us all stronger.” 

The race will take place on the UT track by the Health Education Center. Free parking will be available in lots 1S, 5 and 6. 

Registration and T-shirt pickup will begin at 6:30 a.m. The opening ceremony will start at 7 a.m., with the race and walk at 7:15 a.m. In addition, there will be a closing ceremony. 

To register for the race, visit or visit the event table Sept. 11. 

“The goal of this event is to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice on that day and have people show their support and donate to a good cause,” Fields said.

Although the event is free, a $5 donation is recommended from participants. Funds raised will go to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.
