Team Red White and Blue Moving Tribute
8:30 a.m.
No matter where you’re going to be on Sunday, please join Team Red, White & Blue and make a “moving tribute” to honor those lost on 9/11, the servicemen and women who have been killed or wounded since 9/11 — and all their families. By committing to walk, run, bike or hike on Sept. 11, we are carving out time on this 10th anniversary to reflect upon the tremendous sacrifice so many Americans have made. Team RWB has people from all over the world, including soldiers deployed to Afghanistan, who are joining us in our mission to honor and remember. We encourage you to spread the word and make this tribute in groups, and where possible to meet at 8:30 a.m. to hold a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. — when the North Tower was first attacked.
