The price of freedom


The sacrifices


First responders, our military, veterans & their families

The Memorial

An idea from a volunteer in 2013 has become another way for visitors to learn about the victims, share their experience and connect. Inscribed on the 9/11 Memorial are the names of the 2,983 victims of the 1993 and 2001 attacks.

The Rose

Every morning a staff member checks a binder located in the 9/11 Memorial Museum that has each name and birthday listed chronologically. Before opening to the public, 9/11 Memorial Museum staff places a rose at the name of each victim who has a birthday that day. A rose is cut two inches below the leaves and then placed at the name on the parapet.

We are

Your community connection to honor those who have proudly raised their right hand to take the Oath to protect us and defend our country.

Our mission

To ensure Americans remember the events of 9/11, honor our first responders, military, and veterans, and support families of the wounded and the fallen.


To Remember the price of freedom, Honor the sacrifices, and Support our first responders, military, veterans, and their families.

Upcoming events

Everyone should be someplace to honor the events, victims and heroes of 9/11. There is not a better place to be than our Memorial Event. We promise all who attend that this will be an event you will not soon forget.

Make no mistake about it- as it’s been over the past 8 years our goal is to continue to bring our community together to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11. To Remember 9/11 and Honor our fallen, to give Thanks and to Support our first responders, military and veterans. We must also not forget those heroes on the front lines, including our essential personnel during these present times we find ourselves in battling this nasty war that’s upon us, COVID-19. We continue to acknowledge and wholeheartedly appreciate their service and sacrifice.

As we are not able to gather at the Historic St. Petersburg Coliseum to commemorate the 19th year anniversary - we will come together, just virtually. And, why not? it's become part of our new norm. Details will be announced mid-August.

We Must Never Forget! More info or like to support? Please reach out to our Executive Director, Jo Brower:



All events are COVID-19 pending as we may have to postpone or adjust our Veterans Benefit to protect and care for our patriots, volunteers, and the public. Please continue to check our website and RHS Facebook page for updates.

Together, we raise funds to support our local first responders, veterans and wounded heroes. Post-ride, we’ll come together to celebrate our heroes in the Urban Stillhouse at the American Freedom Distillery - located right off the Pinellas Trail of our “Start and Finish” line of the rides. Come rain or shine!

Participants can bike, walk or run with 3 routes to choose from!
