Oklahoma Standard reflects state residentsí kindness, generosity

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at 12:00:00 am
Oklahoma Standard

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building, the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum is asking Oklahomans to commit to the Oklahoma Standard by committing one act of service, honor and kindness in the month of April.

Volunteer your time to someone in need, honor the victims and survivors of the 1995 bombing and show kindness in smaller ways in order to demonstrate the spirit of generosity that Oklahomans demonstrated to the world – and the world showed to us – during that tragedy.

Watch a video that details more about this effort that Oklahoma City Thunder General Manager Sam Presti, chairman of the campaign, suggested based on his experience living in the state.

The Oklahoma Standard kickoff with the Thunder will be from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 5, 2015, at the Chesapeake Arena.

Join Oklahomans there, or sign up online to participate in the campaign.

Other events related to the Oklahoma City bombing anniversary include:

  • The Memorial Motorcycle Run from noon to 6 p.m. on April 18, a “Ride to Remember” which will include bikers from across the state and beyond to honor those who were killed. Sign up or donate.
  • A reunion with family members, survivors, rescue workers, investigators and law enforcement members associated with the bombing efforts from 3 to 5 p.m. on April 18.
  • The 20th Anniversary Remembrance Ceremony from 8:55 to 10:55 a.m. on April 19, which annually includes 168 seconds of silence at 9:02 a.m.
  • The Reflections of Hope Award luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 20. It will honor the prosecutors, defense attorney and judges who fought for justice following the bombing.
  • The annual OKC Memorial Marathon on April 26, which started in 2001 and has grown into an event with more than 25,000 runners. It is one of the Memorial’s major fundraisers and a Boston-qualifying, sanctioned race. Register now.
  • Cox Community Day on April 19, which includes free museum admission courtesy of Cox Communications.
