RICHMOND, Va. -- Approaching 20 years since the terrorist attack on Sept. 11., the Richmond FBI launched a campaign to honor the 3,000 lives lost.

The event is called The Richmond 3,000 and agents completed over 3,000 laps around their building over the past week.

FBI Special Agent Mark Knoll was at Andrews Air Force base on 9/11 when the president arrived.

"For me tragic on that day it was tragic I don't know that there are words you can use to describe the severity of the site and the impact when you saw the pentagon and Shanksville and the world trade center towers it was a lot to take in," Knoll said.

Personell from the FBI offices in Bristol, Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Lynchburg, Roanoke and Winchester are also all pitching in for the campaign.
