Tunnel to Towers Run
We are raising money for our team to travel to New York City to participate in the Tunnel to Towers 5k. This was something that we did two years ago and it had a tremendous impact on our players and staff. It is a chance for our team to come together and honor the great sacrifice that was given by two of our teammates families and countless others. The 5k retraces the final steps of Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter who lost his life on September 11, 2001 after strapping on his gear and running through the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel (formerly known as the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel) to the TwinTowers. The race will take place on Sunday, September 30th. It is an incredible weekend that has now been something that alumni and other friends and families have come to join us from all over. The funds will be used to bus 60+ players and staff, hotels for Baltimore and NYC, meals, and tickets for tours of the 9/11 Memorial. Anything extra will be donated!
I want to thank everyone for their support and am blown away with how many people reached out for this cause. I wanted to update everyone as we get ready to depart in a couple of days for this trip. I, Connor Mckemey, will personally be withdrawing the funds in order to add it to our High Point Men's Lacrosse fund which is paying for this trip. The money that is left over will be donated to the choice charities of Mick Horrocks and Sean Coughlin. Again, we can not thank you all enough, this is an incredibly meaningful trip for our guys and is something they will be able to share for the rest of their lives.
