Tunnel to Towers 5K

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation is a 9/11 memorial organization that raises money for catastrophically wounded veterans and for the families of first responders who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice. The 2018 Tunnel to Towers 5K will be on Sunday, November 11th (Veteran’s Day) in Ankeny, Iowa.

Here are the details for this year’s event:

Badges will be offered to any Scouts who participate. In the past, Boy Scouts have helped by hosting water stations for the walkers and runners, presenting the flags, directing traffic at course turns, etc. The organization is happy to work with Troops and determine what the best fit is depending on the ages of volunteers.
