More Than 200 Participate In March To The Arch

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)– People across the St. Louis metro are remembering September 11th attack victims by walking miles to make their voices heard. FOX 2 caught up with people in the March to the Arch event to find out what it means to them.

The walk will end at the Arch grounds, but it will take a long walk to get here.

More than 200 people showed up with water in hand at Highway 141 and Clayton Road in West County to start a walk that would take hours to complete.

It`s the 10th year for the March to the Arch event and marchers say they just want to show support for our troops and those affected by the September 11th attacks.

Krista Salvatore was in tower two when the planes hit and says her life was changed forever. “I`m thankful for the first responders and everybody who`s out there fighting for our freedom. For this to never happen again, there`s a lot to be thankful and grateful for,” she said.

 The 21 mile track is set to go through downtown and end at the base of the arch grounds where the color guard and Charles Glenn are expected to perform.
