To Help Remember 9/11 Join Other Patriots in St. Louis and March to the Arch
The March to the Arch is a 21-mile memorial walk that begins in West County and concludes at the base of the Gateway Arch. The walk was started by St. Louis businessman Bo Drochelman on 9-11-02 when he walked the route by himself in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11--and for all other fallen Americans. Bo Drochelman decided to walk the distance at close to four o'clock in the afternoon that day after leaving a note for his wife. "I just felt I had to do something, and it had to be a sacrifice of some sort," Drochelman said. "It couldn't be easy. Writing a check would not be sufficient. I almost needed the physical trauma of the walk to cleanse the hurt and anger. It was a momentary release and a feeling of satisfaction that I did something to show these people that I cared."
There is no money involved in this walk. It is simply a walk to celebrate the freedom of America and all those who have died for it. We hope you will join us this year in our trek to the Gateway Arch!
Bring Your American Flags and Join with Americans from all walks of Life in remembering 9/11.
