Sept. 8 Freedom Walk Honors Those Who Lost Their Lives On Sept. 11, 2001

The city of Las Vegas is hosting the second annual America Supports You Freedom Walk in Las Vegas on Saturday, Sept. 8. The 2.2-mile walk will begin at 8 a.m. at the Kellogg Zaher Sports Complex, located at 7901 W. Washington Ave. Mayor Oscar B. Goodman and Councilman Larry Brown will join the crowd in a moment of silence to honor those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, in the tragedies in New York, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania.

The Freedom Walk is a national tradition designed to reflect on the lives lost on September 11, renew our commitment to freedom and the values of our country and honor our veterans, past and present.

Last year, more than 135 Freedom Walks were held across the country. This year, communities throughout the country are planning Freedom Walks.

Kellogg Zaher Sports Complex is located on Washington Avenue between Durango and Buffalo drives. Participants are requested to enter the park at the entrance at Cimarron Road and meet at the concession stand near soccer fields four and five. For more information, residents can call 229-6776.

The city, metro police and Clark County will also remember those lost on Sept. 11, 2001, at a ceremony at Fire Station Five. It begins at 7 p.m. on Hinson Street, just north of Charleston Boulevard on the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 11.
