Walkers march to the Arch for 11th year in honor of 9/11 victims

september-11

<span>ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Members of the “March to the Arch” are making their way across the St. Louis area in remembrance of 9/11 victims.  They started at 9:11 a.m. Wednesday at Mike Duffy’s Restaurant at Clayton Road and 141 in west St. Louis County. </span>

They expect to arrive at the arch around 6 p.m. Wednesday evening where they will have a ceremony and then bus people back to their cars.   This event has been happening every year on the anniversary of the September 11th attacks since 2002.

That’s when Bo Drochelman did the walk himself because he wanted to do something to remember the victims.   It has grown from there to what we see today.  The walk started with about 150 people Wednesday morning, but walkers will join the group along the route.   There are five stops:
