MycroBurst.com is honoring those affected by the September 11th attacks, for its 10th anniversary. By working with the Garden of Reflection 9/11 Memorial, located in Bucks County, PA, MycroBurst is helping to remember the victims.
“The Garden of Reflection 9/11 Memorial holds a 5k Run/Walk annually, and we knew we had to get involved with this an important event,” explained Executive Vice President Joe Witte. “We know our design community can create a unique and respectful t-shirt design that the runners will be proud to wear.”
MycroBurst has began running a design contest on their website for the 8th Annual 9/11 Garden of Reflection Run/Walk’s t-shirt design.
“With the 10th anniversary of 9/11 coming up, we wanted to do something to help our local community,” said CEO Zaheer Dodhia. “I’m very excited to see all of the designs we receive.”
Garden of Reflection 9/11 Memorial is a physical memorial that was constructed to remember and honor those affected by September 11th. It was created and is maintained by the Garden of Reflection committee.
The Garden of Reflection committee holds the 5k to raise money to help maintain the memorial. Over the past 7 years, thanks to participants and sponsors, the 5k has raised $85,000 for this effort.
“We are very fortunate to be able to work with such a unique organization,” said Witte. “The amount of support they have generated from the community is enormous.”
The t-shirt design contest runs until August 10th, the winning designer to be announced on August 16th.
Not only will the winning t-shirt designer receive $300, their design will also receive a lot of exposure. Each 5k participant will receive a t-shirt with the winning design.
