VOICES Gala: Inspiring Resilience Stories!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to making VOICES Always Remember Virtual Gala such an inspirational event! First and foremost, our Co-hosts and longstanding friends - ESPN personalities, Mike Greenberg and Jeremy Schaap, whose enthusiasm set the tone for the evening, and their colleagues at ESPN who helped support the event.


The one-hour program included inspirational stories from prominent athletes who demonstrated resilience in the aftermath of 9/11, while reflecting on VOICES important work and accomplishments. Some of the highlights of the evening included remarks from our Champions of Resilience and VOICES partners in the United States and abroad. The event concluded with a musical performance by Daniel Rodriguez, “America’s Tenor.”

If you missed the Gala, the on-hour program is available on our website at
