The Flags on the 48 has always been a grassroots effort, made up entirely of volunteers who believe those who perished in the terrorist attacks of 9/11 should never be forgotten.  We are a collection of regular hikers and non-hikers alike, joining forces each year to create this unique memorial.  People participate from all over the world: we’ve had participants from as far away as Brazil and as close as next door.  But no matter where we come from, we all hike to remember those who lost their lives in our country’s worst act of terrorism.
