About this event


9/11 NYC

"I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon."
– President George W. Bush, September 14, 2001 at Ground Zero

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, changed America and the lives of Americans forever. Our Cadre conduct 9/11 Commemorative events around the country to honor and remember those we lost: the courageous First Responders and the soldiers who fought in the Global War on Terrorism. Cadre and all willing participants will share their 9/11 story: where were you, how did it change your life? Never Forget.

10-12 HOURS, 15-20 MILES. THE ORIGINAL CHALLENGE. AVERAGE COMPLETION RATE: 94%

Now separated from Group he tries to impart those lessons learned to his small town police department. Chris is happily married to a remarkable woman and enjoys raising a daughter with a balance of glitter and grit.
