Project information:

The September 11th National Memorial Trail is a tribute to all who perished and to the heroic first responders on September 11, 2001, in America’s worst terrorist attack. The 1,300-mile trail symbolizes the resiliency and character of America by linking the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pa. Cyclists, walkers, and drivers can experience breathtaking landscapes, new towns, and the patriotism that grows from visiting sites that demonstrate our nation’s strength. The NRG Gives award will help to build the September 11th National Memorial Trail sections near Flight 93 and Johnstown, Pa., and do planning in between. The Community Foundation for the Alleghenies, which will administer the award on behalf of the many project partners, is a nonprofit public foundation that builds professionally managed assets from donors to support Bedford, Cambria, Indiana, and Somerset counties. Innumerable people will benefit from this trail development as it boosts the economy by attracting tourists, honors those who sacrificed so much in the attacks on our nation, and promotes community health by encouraging active lifestyles.
