6th Annual 'A Run Down Hero Highway

Sunday, November 24, 2013 – New York City

 

The Event

Registration is NOW OPEN for our 6th Annual ‘A Run Down Hero Highway’ which will take place on Sunday, November 24th. This is a patriotic and family-friendly 5k run/walk/stroll that pays tribute to local hero Sgt. James J. Regan, and helps raise money for the Lead The Way Fund. All proceeds go to support the families of our US Army Rangers who have been killed, disabled, or are currently serving in harm’s way around the world.

 

Now in its sixth year, and back bigger and stronger after last year’s cancellation due to Hurricane Sandy, this event brings together people of all ages for a spirited run/walk/stroll along the Hudson River. Starting at Pier 46, entrants complete a 5K roundtrip along the West Side Highway, past Ground Zero and in constant view of Lady Liberty. The festivities continue with a post-race celebratory brunch at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers.

 

This year, in conjunction with The American Fallen Soldiers Project, we will present original portraits to the families of beloved fallen Rangers SGT Andrew Nicol and SPC Bradley D. Rappuhn. In addition, continuing with our tradition of supporting other home-town heroes in the NYPD and FDNY, we will also be presenting a portrait to the family of NYPD 9/11 First Responder, Bomb Squad Detective Claude “Danny” Richards.

 

Attendees will revel in a day filled with moving tributes, amazing camaraderie and great food & drink. Over 1,100 people joined us for the 5th annual Run Down Hero Highway. We can’t wait to commemorate and celebrate with you!
