Cecelia Kauth, of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., was only 15 years old on September 11, 2001, when her father, Don Kauth, was killed working at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods (KBW) on the 89th floor of the World Trade Center's South Tower.
Today, Kauth is 25 and working hard to finish a long, cross-country bicycle ride in her father's honor. Kauth embarked in June from her home in Portland, Ore., and is hoping to finish her ride on Sept. 10, in New York City, in time to attend 10th anniversary memorial services with her family on September 11.
Kauth is seen here biking the Columbia River Gorge in Washington State.
