About The Race

This race is held in memory of all the heroes that lost their lives on 9/11, and in honor of all that still answer the call. It takes countless hours of training and dedication to volunteer on your local Fire/EMS Department. Not only do they drop everything as soon as the alarm sounds, they also risk personal injury on every call. It is an unselfish service that they provide with little acknowledgment. Let’s recognize these volunteer first responders by supporting the 9/11 Hero 5k!

A portion of your registration will go directly to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation operates as a non-profit organization. The Organization serves military and first responders through various programs and initiatives. Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation serves communities in the United States.
