A Heartfelt Thank You to Our Community Heroes


In times of darkness, it is the light of compassion and support that shines the brightest. Today, we, the Children of Fallen Heroes, want to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude and heartfelt appreciation to our incredible community heroes - the City of Graham Council Members, City of Graham NC Fire Department, Graham Recreation and Parks Department, and Graham Police Department. Their unwavering support and incredible generosity have touched our lives in ways words cannot fully capture.

During the recent City of Graham Council Meeting on Tuesday night, our hearts were overwhelmed with emotion as we witnessed an incredible display of compassion. A check for the donations raised at the 2022 9/11 Commemorative 5K Event was presented, symbolizing the collective efforts and solidarity of our community. In that moment, we realized that we were not alone in our journey.

The funds raised through the 5K event will serve a profound purpose. They will provide much-needed support for our STEM programs, designed to empower and uplift the children of fallen military personnel, first responders, foster kids, and caregivers. Through these programs, we will offer these young souls educational opportunities, guidance, and resources in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It is an investment in their future, giving them the tools they need to build successful and fulfilling lives.


To the City of Graham NC Fire Department, we extend our deepest gratitude. Your dedication to the well-being of our community, your selflessness in the face of danger, and your unwavering commitment inspire us every day. You are the embodiment of courage and resilience, and we are forever grateful for the sacrifices you make to keep us safe.

To the Graham Recreation and Parks Department, we want to express our utmost appreciation. Your tireless efforts in organizing the 2022 9/11 Commemorative 5K Event have created a sense of unity and belonging within our community. Through your dedication, you have shown us that we are not defined by our losses but by the love and support that surround us.

To the Graham Police Department, we extend our sincerest thanks. Your commitment to upholding the law, protecting our rights, and ensuring our safety is commendable. Your presence provides us with a sense of security and peace of mind. We are grateful for your service and dedication.

In addition, we want to congratulate the Graham Fire Department for winning the First Responders Team Cup at the 2022 event. Your achievement is a testament to your unwavering teamwork, determination, and resilience. We are proud to be associated with such an outstanding group of individuals who consistently go above and beyond to serve our community.

To everyone involved in making the 2022 9/11 Commemorative 5K Event a resounding success, we want to convey our heartfelt appreciation. Your collective efforts have made a tangible difference in the lives of these children. The funds raised and the support shown remind us that we are not alone in our journey.
