Firefighters from Lugoff and Camden Fire Departments, along with other first responders from across Kershaw County, have announced that the 3rd Annual Walk of Remembrance will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2022. This annual walk, beginning this year at Lugoff Fire Department and ending at Camden Fire Department Station I, honors the fallen first responders of the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. 

The Walk of Remembrance will begin at 9:00 am Saturday, September 10th at the Lugoff Fire Station, 892 Highway 1 South and continue for approximately five miles along U.S. Highway 1 into downtown Camden, ending at the Camden Fire Station I at City Hall, 1000 Lyttleton Street. Two shuttles will be available at 8:00 and 8:30 am to take walkers who park at Camden Fire Station I to the start of the walk at Lugoff Fire Station. An additional shuttle will take walkers who park at Lugoff Fire Station back after completing the Walk of Remembrance. 

The public is invited to join first responders in this year’s walk and are asked to register in advance at bit.ly/911walk. Tee shirts are available for purchase to all registrants. Tee shirts will be available for pick up from 2:00 – 8:00 pm on Friday, September 9th at Camden Fire Station I. Additional tee shirts will be available for purchase $20 each at Lugoff Fire Station the morning of the walk.

Local businesses and community partners are invited to participate as sponsors of the annual Walk of Remembrance. Donations will go toward the purchase of bottled water and refreshments for the first responders and members of the public participating in the walk. All additional proceeds will be donated directly to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, providing mortgage-free homes to Gold Star and fallen first responder families with young children, building custom-designed smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans and first responders, and eradicating veteran homelessness as well as aiding the victims of major U.S. disasters.
