11th 2001 is a day many of us will never forget... as a way to show gratitude for the brave individuals who lost their lives on this day18 years ago..... a group in starkville took to the streets for a remembrance walk.

Members with fit walk starkville pounded the pavement while also carrying the u-s flag on their shoulders.

Some walked a mile..... while others walked just over three miles.

Organizers say this is a way for them to simply say thank you to the first responders who protected this country on that tragic day... "9-11 really affected me.

I was in high school when it happened.

What happened, but how the country responded from that, just that sense of community and appreciation for life, i think that something we should never forget.

Not just what happened on the day, but the response the country had."

This marks the first time fit walk starkville has held a 9-11 remembrance walk...... they hope to make this an annual event.
