It’s not a run, but it is for a good cause:
Muskogee’s fourth annual FREEDOM WALK is scheduled for Saturday, September 8 at 8:00 a.m. The two-mile walk begins at Muskogee Civic Center Plaza, down to, and along Muskogee’s Centennial Trail to 21st Street and back. The event honors and remembers the victims and ‘First Responders’ of the September 11 attacks that left more than 3000 Americans dead.
Sponsored and created by Downtown Muskogee, Inc., this year’s Freedom Walk is co-sponsored by the Muskogee Civic Center, Three Rivers Museum, Homeland Grocery Stores and local citizen volunteers.
The walk is free and open to the public. Water and coffee along with fruit and breakfast pastries will be provided for participating walkers. Individuals, civic groups, local organizations and families are encouraged to join in this uplifting and moving celebration and remembrance. A short program of music, commemoration and prayer will precede the walk.
Cash donations for Blue Star Mothers will be received at the Freedom Walk. Blue Star Mothers will use the funds to purchase and ship care packages to troops currently serving overseas.
