Rosemead’s September Run for the Memorial

By Cathy Brehm

On Saturday, September 10, 2011, at 8:00 a.m., 10 years from the tragic event on September 11, 2001, about 75 or more individuals participated in the “Second Annual Run/Walk for the Memorial” raising funds for the beautiful monument that would be unveiled the following day at City Hall.

The Run for the Memorial began at the UFC Gym, located at 8920 Glendon Way and ended at Rosemead City Hall and was presented by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, UFC Gym and the City of Rosemead.

I was able to catch one of the 5K runners, Takspa Lekdan , and he commented on his experience at the run.  “It was very well organized, weather was great and towards the end of the race, my deep emotions and thoughts of 9/11, gave me the energy to sprint to the finish line.” To his misfortune, Takspa, entering the race at the very last moment, and not having enough time to get his T-Shirt on before the race began, so in error was not recognized as one of the winners. “Just being able to participate was enough for me”, he commented.

At the end of the run/walk, medals were awarded to the top three male and female finishers in each division and to all participants 10 years and younger.  All participants received a Run for the Memorial T-Shirt, a 30-day pass to the UFC Gym, and a giveaway bag.

It was a great day for Rosemead!
