Interfaith group to walk in remembrance of 9/11

The Interfaith Youth Group Tri-Cities invites people of all ages and faiths to a peace walk Saturday in remembrance of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Faith houses are invited to make banners or flags supporting peace to carry along the route. Walkers also are encouraged to donate to the following charities: charitywater.org, handicap-international.us and redcross.org.

Walkers will travel six miles, from Shalom United Church of Christ to the Islamic Center. Register at www.ifyg.org or from 8 to 9 a.m. at the church, 505 McMurray St. in Richland.

The walk will begin after opening remarks at 9 a.m.

Walkers are asked to bring a water bottle and wear white shirts with peace symbols or letters. Some decorating supplies may be available during registration.

The event is co-sponsored by World Citizens for Peace. The Red Cross will provide several water and snack stations along the route. Shuttles will be available for those who cannot walk the entire route.
