As Friends of Flight 93, we welcome worldwide all who would join us in honoring the sacrifice and courage of the passengers and crew of Flight 93 by supporting the mission of the Flight 93 National Memorial with volunteers, resources, and civic engagement, so as to inspire all who visit with the Flight 93 story.
September 10, 2022
The Friends are hosting Heroes' Walk 2022, previously known as the Walk 93. It will take place on September 10, 2022, at Flight 93 National Memorial.
Please stay connected for more information about our Heroes' Walk 2022 at Flight 93 National Memorial & information about registration when it opens on our Facebook: @Flight93Friends and Instagram: @flight93friends.
Participants will be "Strolling with Stories" and experiencing the national memorial's three designated walking trails (Western Overlook Trail, Memorial Plaza, Allee (Wetland Bridge)). Flight 93 family members will be positioned along the trails to share stories of their loved ones from United Flight 93 as well as the other brave passengers and crew members. Flight 93 park rangers will offer insights into the memorial's architectural design.
Gordon Felt brother of Passenger Edward Porter Felt invites you to join him on the walk, "We cannot waver in our support of the Flight 93 National Memorial. The "Heroes Walk" provides an opportunity for participants to reflect on the collective actions of the passengers and crew members of United Flight 93 that led to the first victory in this current war on terrorism. In these chaotic times, it is critical that we take time to remember the events of Sept. 11th; to be inspired by the actions of our heroes and to strive to be worthy of their sacrifice."
Join us and family members in walking together in remembrance. Family members like Mr. Felt cannot wait to share their stories of loved ones.
Please consider donating to help us redesign the Western Overlook in honor of the forty passenger and crew members of Flight 93. Make sure your donation is for "Heroes' Walk 2022."
September 11, 2001 began as an ordinary, late-summer day. But, in less than two hours' time, this seemingly routine day was transformed when nineteen terrorists boarded and hijacked four airplanes to attack America.Read the story
