New Orleans Memorial Stair Climb “Mile of Silence Walk”

Lafayette Square
Getting there
540 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans, LA

The New Orleans Memorial Stair Climb is proud to announce its Inaugural “Mile of Silence Walk”. Family, friends and supporters of first responder’s can walk a mile in their shoes to support, honor and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. This walk is NOT a race and it is NOT about us. It is about the fallen and their families, so PLEASE pay your respect by walking in silence in their Honor. It is limited to 2,566 spots, the exact number of civilians that perished on that horrific day 18 years ago. Out motto is "Forgetting is not an option!" Check-in located in Lafayette Square, then the walk will begin at the corner of Poydras St and Magazine St (400 Poydras Tower). Walkers will proceed down Magazine St to Calliope St, take a right on Calliope St to Camp St, take a right on Camp St back down to Poydras St, and finish back at the corner of Poydras St and Magazine St (in front of 400 Poydras Tower). Rain or Shine.
