Others took to the streets, making an impression on every car that drove by.
#RWBTribute I'm stunned by this coverage. I really would've preferred to stay on the sidelines but it is really good publicity for @TeamRWB https://t.co/dgqwHEgegc During those miles I thought often of the @sunyoswego poli-sci grad who lost his life on 9/11 serving with the FDNY

Participants, including Peraton employees, joined from home by jumping on their stationary bikes, treadmills, and rowers.
My morning ran away from me & I couldn't get outside, but I wasn't going to miss the opportunity to support @TeamRWB’s 9/11 Moving Tribute with @PeratonCorp, even if I had to bike 9.11 miles indoors between meetings #RWBTribute #Peraton #DoTheCantBeDone #NeverForget pic.twitter.com/UJDNONzoeD

The United States flag is carried around a 4-mile loop @SedgwickCounty Park as a Moving Tribute today, sponsored by the local chapter of @TeamRWB. The goal is to have flags circulating the park from sunrise to sunset on 9/11. 📷: @green_jaime #RWBTribute #NeverForget #September11 pic.twitter.com/adMUmeZHTW

Today I RUCK 9.11 miles with 30Lb. From Coldeham firehouse to the Washingtonville 911 memorial. A tribute to the 2,977 lives lost on September 11, 2001 and the 5,449 service members killed in action in the wars following. I’m overwhelm by the support of those strangers that stop along the way and offer water. The ones that hunk to show support. The police officers that escort me so I can cross the tunnel safely. The service man that stop to offer support and words of encouragement and the man who shared the lost of his NYPD brother with me. To my friend Sharon, thank you. Thank you to those who have donate to @semperfifund. Following 911 attack, we were a nation of unity. We help our neighbors without caring about their skin color, race or sexual orientation. Let’s get back to that. #semperfi #sffcommunityathlete #teamnuun #nuunhydration #rwbtribute #teamwrb #neverforget #onenation #fdny #nypd #procompression
Eagle Nation will never forget.
