In August of 2010, 15 Fire Fighters from around Australia will run across America from LA to NY with American Fire Fighters to remember those who were lost in the September 11 attacks of 2001.
The run will finish in NY on September 11 and is a symbolic gesture of mateship, camaraderie and an unwavering commitment to peace.
We dedicate our efforts to those people we can only see in our memories and to those who continue to serve as the first responders to tragedies world wide.
Let each step we take be a reminder of the sacrifice made and bring us a step closer to the peace and happiness we all seek with our friends and families.
The Tour of Duty running team is the coming together of two Nations, and combines a broad representation of the States and Territories that make up each Country. America and Australia share a history and an alliance that has endured war and peace, good times and bad, for this run we come together to remember 9 11.
American and Australian fire-fighters, police officers, military personnel and emergency service personnel, banding together to run the width and breadth of America, from coast to coast, from the Southern border to the far North, 4,600 Miles through and across the United States.
Congratulations to the Chicago Fire Department for having such a fantastic guy in Patrick Maloney
THESE PEOPLE WERE VERY AMAZING.. it was hard to see the Port Authority officer running.. they were entirely wiped out on 9/11
