2018 Tunnel to Towers Run & Walk
On September 8, the Tunnel to Towers Run & Walk will take place in Vero Beach at Riverside Park. The events begins at 7:30 am and continues until 9:30 am.

The event honors him and all the other first responders who lost their lives on the tragic day. It also honors the current military members and first responders who put their lives on the line.
The event is a 3.43 mile run or walk. No matter your fitness level, you’re welcome to visit Vero Beach and attend this event. In addition to the run, there will be a one mile memorial walk. If the three miles is too far, you can show your support in the shorter walk.
