What is the Never Forget Virtual Challenge?The Never Forget Virtual Challenge is a challenge to have people do one thing to honor and remember the sacrifice of 9-11. It is our hope that individuals, families, first responders, military and anyone who would have supported one of our Run and Climb events, including the NYC 5K Run and Walk, would take time to share how they will “Never Forget.”
When does this virtual challenge start and finish? Registration will open on August 24 and end on October 19. Anyone who registers is encouraged to participate in the challenge at any time during the campaign period.
How can I take part? Once you register, decide how you will remember 9-11. We have made some suggestions below but feel free to get creative with your remembrance. The key is to tell us what you did by posting pictures, screenshots, and using the #T2TNeverForget hashtag on your social media pages.
- Do a 5K - walk, run, bike - the distance Stephen Siller ran in full turnout gear.
- Light a candle on 9-11 and leave it lit in your home for the day.
- Do 9-11 push ups, jumping jacks, minutes of jumping rope.
Whatever you do - take a picture, wear your Tunnel to Towers Custom Bib that you will receive upon registering, or your Tunnel to Towers shirts, and let us know how you did! Remember the goal is to keep it simple and do this one time, when you can!
I don't run or walk, can I choose my own way to remember and still participate and be part of the virtual challenge?No problem! We want everyone to participate and take time to remember 9-11 in any way that they can. Maybe your virtual challenge includes chalking your driveway with Never Forget or another message from your heart. Perhaps your challenge includes prayer or lighting a candle in your home.If you have kids - sit down and talk to them about 9-11. Have your kids draw a picture to help remember 9-11
