Tunnel to Towers (T2T) 5K Run & Walk
This information has gone out via social media, but some of you are not on Facebook and we wanted to include you in on this event. Brothers Before Others is participating this year and running/walking in honor of Amy. Most of us plan to take the Amtrak train from Aberdeen to Penn Station in NYC, Saturday morning on Sept. 28th. I’m working on transportation from local police to take us to the World Trade Center for a tour and then to visit the 9/11 Museum. The host hotel is the Hyatt Place in Jersey City.
We will travel by motor coach Sunday morning from the host hotel to the Ikea, 1 Beard St., Brooklyn, NY 11231. The BBO group will meet at the flag poles out front of Ikea, where event packages will be given out. The package includes your number bib, T2T t-shirt, Team Caprio t-shirt and Team Caprio hat for those running. Numerous people from BBO will be walking, if you feel that running is not an option. After the run/walk we will be taken back to the host hotel via motor coach. For those staying the night Sunday, we’ll meet up in the afternoon for dinner etc. You can travel back to Maryland after the run/walk or the next day. We realize that the last defendant is scheduled to be sentenced on Monday, September 30th at 1300 hours.
I’m currently obtaining permission from Chief Hyatt for us to wear our patrol uniforms during the run, but it is not a guarantee at this time. Right now we have Tim Caprio, Debbie, Garry & Laura Sorrells, Brian Shea, Mike & Erin Lyon, Tim Milich, Bob Griffith and Katie & I registered. I hope you’ll come to NYC to support Amy, family and BBO.
I ran with BBO last year. There was (50) uniformed officers and another (80) BBO members who ran or walked. Talk about motivating. I know it’ll tough commuting to and from NYC, but trust me it’ll be well worth it. The BBO guys take this very seriously and will make sure you’re well taken care of. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. You can call or text me at 443-386-7617 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please see the attached links, which provide more background info along with the registration link. Share with anyone you think would be interested.
About the Tunnel to Towers (T2T) 5K Run & Walk:
The Tunnel to Towers Run & Walk was created to retrace the final steps of Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter who lost his life on September 11th, 2001 after strapping on his gear and running through the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel to the Twin Towers. The T2T 5K pays homage to all first responders and service members who made, and continue to make, extraordinary sacrifices in the line of duty. The T2T 5K is located in the boroughs of Brooklyn and Manhattan. The T2T 5K starts at Ikea Parking Lot 9, 1 Beard St., Brooklyn, NY 11231 and ends in Manhattan at the corners of West and Murray Streets. The T2T 5K is slightly longer than a standard 5K course.
