This year the Brewster Varsity Field Hockey team once again participated in the Stephen Siller 2022 Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk New York City.
We had 5 varsity field hockey players participate in the event along with myself – Coach Jennifer Purcell and two parents.
Date: September 25
Time: 9:30 am – 2:00 pm
Organizer: Tunnel To Towers Foundation
They were able to register and/or raise funds through the Tunnel To Towers Foundation.
Tunnels To Towers is important to our athletes because we are able to recognize and remember first responders. Many athletes have family members that serve our country or work as first responders. The team has continuously participated in this event to honor a member of the field hockey team years ago, Alex Blackwell, who lost her father, Chris, a member of the F.D.N.Y, in the September 11 attacks.
As the athletes participate they are able to chant along with cadets, shake hands/high five ROTC groups and first responders while seeing images of those who have passed and paying respect to them.
This event is an incredible way to thank our heroes.
