“The 911 Trail Challenge engages community partners and Trail enthusiasts while calling attention to the monumental events of September 11, 2001,” said Thomas Baxter, president of the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance. “The event also acknowledges the lives forever
impacted by the actions of heroes who defended our nation’s freedom on that day.”

Riders may register online at 911trailchallenge.org. Sponsorships are available by contacting the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance at info@911Trail.org. Proceeds generated by the event will be stewarded by the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies in the 911 Trail Fund. The Fund was created to facilitate development of the September 11th National Memorial Trail. The Community Foundation for the Alleghenies is based in Johnstown, PA, and promotes philanthropy in the Pennsylvania counties of Bedford, Cambria, Indiana, and Somerset, where the Flight 93 National Memorial is located.
