9/11 'March to the Arch' Heads Through Town and Country
The annual event to remember the Sept. 11 terror attacks left from Mike Duffy's in Town and Country and made its way down Clayton Road Tuesday morning.
The annual "March to the Arch" is a 21-mile memorial walk that begins in Town and Country and continues down to the Gateway Arch on the St. Louis riverfront.
As previously reported by Patch, the march begins at 9:11 a.m. each Sept. 11. Walkers leave from Mike Duffy's restaurant at Clayton Road and Highway 141. Walkers head downtown and begin the trek along Clayton Road.
The annual march to remember the 9/11 vicitims was sparked by West County resident Bo Drochelman on Sept. 11, 2002 when he decided to grab an American flag and and walk from his house near Weidman Road to the Gateway Arch.
Now hundreds join Drochelman on the journey to remember the lives lost Sept. 11, 2001.
Watch Tuesday's walk in the FOX2 video included in this story.
