Tunnel to Towers CEO Completes 537-Mile ‘Never Forget Walk’ Dedicated to the 9/11 Victims
Prior to the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Tunnel to Towers Foundation CEO and founder, Frank Stiller completed a 537-mile “Never Forget Walk.”
The walk is in memory of the victims of the infamous U.S. history events. According to the Foundation’s press release, Siller walked through a total of six states in six weeks. He began at the Pentagon in Washington D.C., which was one of the buildings hit on 9/11. He then made his way to Shanksville Pennsylvania, the resting place of Flight 93. Finally, he finished his walk by retracing his brother’s final footsteps to the World Trade Center.
Speaking about the walk, Siller said, “I can’t tell you how important it is to make sure we never forget what happened 20 years ago. This walk will remind our fellow Americans what happened 20 years ago. So they will tell their children what happened.”
Siller also said that the “Never Forget Walk” is about honoring the 9/11 victims. It also honors those who were lost in the years since the attack during the War on Terror.
Retired U.S. Army Captain, Gavin White, thanks those walking to honor the victims of 9/11 and beyond. “For all of you out here today to walk, thank you for bringing attention to something that needs attention. Thank you for sharing with every step memories that need to be remembered.”
