Others took to the streets, making an impression on every car that drove by.

Participants, including Peraton employees, joined from home by jumping on their stationary bikes, treadmills, and rowers.  

Team RWB chapters and Window World locations across the country hosted in-person, socially distanced events, following local health guidance. 

Participants from a variety of organizations and backgrounds came to join, raising awareness and preserving the memory of this important day in American history.

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
