This annual race in Arlington, Virginia has been going on for 12 years and supports 9/11 related charities. The race is comprised of first responders of any type. The Wheeling Police Department has 11 officers racing -- one woman and ten men. They plan to run together this year in support of the teamwork response from the attacks on 9/11.
We talked to Sgt. McKenzie who was excited to run with his comrades as a team.
"We plan to run together this year. There are some guys that could probably place but we're going to finish as a team."
The Memorial Race has raised over 400 thousand dollars for 9/11 related charities over the past eleven years. This year they are supporting Segs 4 Vets and Project Enduring Pride.
