9/11 survivors assemble bikes for 10th annual 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance

Hundreds of volunteers from companies affected by the terrorist attacks of 9/11 built bicycles for children of active-duty military personnel as part of the 9/11 Tribute Museum’s 10th annual Day of Service and Remembrance.

The bikes will be taken to Fort Bragg, North Carolina and distributed to the children whose parents deployed from the area.

9/11 Tribute Museum’s co-founder and CEO Jennifer Adams-Webb told PIX Channel 11 reporter Joe Mauceri, “Being a survivor is a really difficult experience to come back to the same place where you went through a horrible experience, but the perseverance of those people to rebuild lower Manhattan is really incredible. So for them to come and be able to do something really good, especially here at the World Trade Center Oculus, it’s a beautiful space, it’s really a celebration of our rebuilding and our revitalization of this area.”

Video of the event is available here.
