Calling all runners, walkers or those who just want to support a great cause.
The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation will hold the Arizona Tunnel to Towers 5K Run/Walk at Tempe Town Lake on Saturday, September 9, 2017. The 5K Run/Walk will start at 8:00 a.m. The route will start and end at the Healing Field. The Healing Field is a breathtaking tribute of honor and respect for all those that were lost on 9/11/2001. Registration for the 5K Run/Walk is now officially open and participants may register online.
The event will honor and celebrate Arizona’s first responders—fire, police, EMT’s, paramedics—as well as military service heroes who serve, sacrifice and protect us every day. Tunnel to Towers is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing services for the nation’s first responders and military. The proceeds from this event will benefit America’s bravest. Through its Building for America’s Bravest program, dozens of customized high-tech “smart homes” have been built throughout the country for catastrophically injured service members. These homes, created primarily for those who are now triple-and quadruple-amputees as a result of IED explosions, have specialized features run off of iPads to allow these heroes to lead as independent a life as possible.
