HOLMDEL,NJ: On Tuesday, September 10th,  Holmdel father of two, Donald Aquilano will be leaving the 9/11 Memorial at Holmdel Town Hall at around 5:00 P.M. He will be leaving on foot, walking from Holmdel to the 9/11 Memorial in New York City. Yes, that's correct, Aquilano will once again for the third year in a row, walk 45-50 miles, every step of the way paying homage to the American Flag and all of those who have sacrificed to protect it.

Aquilano's is walking from Holmdel to NYC, to show his respect and support for the 911 victims and all of the fire, police and military.  "I have been preparing for this walk since the last one on 911 of 2018. It's something I look forward to all year long. My wife and daughters can tell you, I am passionate about remembering and honoring the victims of 911, raising awareness and supporting our military, first aid, fire, police. This is something I can do to give back and show my respect." Aquilano commented.

As he traditionally does, Aquilano will be wearing an American flag suit and have the American flag with him the entire time. In previous years Aquilano was escorted by his father who followed on a Harley trike and acted as ground support, as he was a first responder for 9/11 and is retired from the Jersey City Fire Department. This year Tom's Ford has loaned one of their trucks in support of the walk, to trail Aquilano along his way. This year's proceeds will be donated to Unbroken Warriors and 911 Memorial and Museum. 

If you would like to make a donation to the walk, reach out to Donald on Facebook at Walk to Ground Zero or call 732.832.1430. Cheer Donald on by going gathering at 5pm at Holmdel Town Hall to cheer for him as he starts the walk. Cheer him along his route up 35 North, and then routes 1 & 9 before walking throught the Holland Tunnel. Or follow along on Facebook and provide support there. #WALKTOGROUNDZERO
