Ultra distance runner Jan Walker began her Rise Up for the Fallen: Run Across America on March 1 in Oceanside, CA, and will arrive at the Pentagon Memorial this summer.
Jan is making the roughly 4-month trek to raise awareness and donations for The September 11th National Memorial Trail, an 1100-mile network of multi-use trails and scenic roads that link the three National Memorials dedicated to the memory of those who perished in the tragic events of September 11, 2001: the National September 11th Memorial in New York City, the Pentagon Memorial in Arlington County, VA and the Flight 93 Memorial near Shanksville, PA.
Jan will visit 9/11 memorials in communities along her route, and will complete her run at the Pentagon Memorial this summer. She will be available to the news media in communities and cities throughout her journey.
