Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood resident Frank DelVecchio  will once again run the annual 9/11 Remembrance Run. In Facebook post Frank laid out his plan and offered some personal observations: 

“It’s that time of year! It has been a long 18 months for all of us. After battling Covid and pneumonia for 3 weeks, with 12 days of a high fever and all the other symptoms you can think of, plus months to recover, I am ready for the annual 9/11 Remembrance Run. I was so lucky during Covid, I recovered and was never hospitalized, but many weren’t as lucky. I am thankful for all the blessings God has given to me and my family. This is the 10th year of the run and the 20th Anniversary of that tragic day, which none of us will ever forget.

The run is now a 13 mile run/13 mile bike event from the Ridgewood Duck Pond to the WTC in NYC. I am getting older at 52, lol. The Foundation is nothing without the generosity of others, the foundation has provided support to people and organizations for years, totaling way over 100,000 dollars. Please consider supporting the run/bike this year with a contribution in any amount.

Go to, a 501c3 charity. Your donation is tax deductible. Special shout out to the DeVita Family, who sponsor the run each year, along with Michael Kasparian and family and George and Rose Santiago, who are also sponsoring the run this year. But fundraising has dropped over the past year and we need all the help possible. Thank you to those of you that donate each year and those that help each year (Ramon Hache, Jim Roth, Denise, Chris, Aaron and Kaylee). Take care and may God bless. Remember 9/11.”
