SANDY (News4Utah)- Since 2002, three thousand American flags have been posted in front of Sandy City Hall the week of the of Sept. 11th.

Each flag represents a 9/11 victim.

This year, the flags will be on display Sept. 8th through the 12th from dawn to dusk at 10000 Centennial Parkway.

The display, called Utah Healing field, will raise money to benefit Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.). Operation Underground rescues children enslaved by sex trafficking.

Sponsorships begin at $35 to buy a flag kit, and after the event, the sponsor may keep the flag or donate it back to the event for future use. The Colonial Flag Foundation proudly presents this Event each year.

On Tuesday, Sept. 11th, a memorial program will be presented at 7 p.m. All events are free and open to the public.
