(KTVI) – At 9:11 a.m. this Sunday, a 5k race begins in Belleville. It’s a fundraiser to help raise a 911 memorial at the intersection of Illinois Route 15 and 13.
At the center of this memorial, a massive twisted steel beam from the World Trade Center. An I-beam that’s been stored at Belleville Fire Station 4 since it arrived.
Fire department captain Dave Zahn and Jason Unverzagt joined us live to talk about the event on FOX 2 News in the Morning.
