Tunnel to Towers 5k
Sep 28, 2018 - Sep 30, 2018
Semper Fi Fund’s sixth consecutive participation at Tunnel to Towers 5k & Walk New York City. At this powerful event, which comes just two weeks after the 16th anniversary of the horrors of 9/11, recovering service members, caregivers and family members will all participate in taking the same path as New York City firefighter Stephen Siller took that day when he parked his truck by the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and ran to the World Trade Center site with 60 pounds of gear on his back—only to give up his life while saving the lives of others.
“Many of the service members that are helped by the Semper Fi Fund cite the events of 9/11 as the reason they raised their right hand and took an oath to defend this country,” said Semper Fi Fund President, Executive Director and Founder Karen Guenther. “This 5k has a very special place in our hearts, and it’s deeply touching to see how the members of Team Semper Fi take the notion of recovery through sport and blend it with honoring first responders.”
