The September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance is pleased to welcome three new faces — a new board member and two communications staff members — to the team to support the continued growth of the 1,300-mile trail.
Deborah Borza remembers meeting David Brickley, founder of the 9/11 Trail, at an event at the Flight 93 National Memorial. Since the airline crash took the life of Deora, her 20-year-old daughter, Borza has been working to ensure that a fitting memorial to the flight’s passengers and crew was built in southwestern Pennsylvania. She liked the sounds of Brickley’s project, creating a trail that would connect all three memorials.
“I was interested,” she remembers, “because I want the other two memorials to have a connection to the Flight 93 site.”
For 2020, in response to safety concerns posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, our second annual 24-mile bike ride through beautiful Laurel Highlands region, including a loop through the grounds of the Flight 93 National Memorial, will become a virtual ride.
All registrants will receive a Tour de Trail t-shirt, map of the route, and link to video footage of the route, including recent ceremonies at the memorial site honoring Flight 93 passengers and crew. Participants can ride the route themselves, at a convenient day and time of your choosing, or bike 24 miles closer to home.
