Got the Tee Shirt – What does “Got the T-Shirt” team name mean and who is on the team? On 9/11 thousands of first responders answered the call for help, for 343 Firefighters, 60 Police officers and 8 Paramedics and EMTs it was their last call. Their sacrifice on 9/11 will never be forgotten, but we must also remember the hundreds of responders who have died in the last 19 years from exposure to the dust and smoke of ground zero. This team will run/ walk or cheer really loudly from the sidelines in their memory!Why “Got the T-Shirt”? The team is made up of Members of Service (MOS) who have survived 9/11 cancer, or a MOS or MOS family member who will run in the name of an MOS who has lost their battle with 9/11 cancer. All members of the team have earned their T-Shirt in some way!! No matter how sick a responder was or is as long as we can help a fellow MOS we have a duty to do what we can. We set a team goal of $10,000 to raise for T2T ! If you are a survivor, a MOS or family member of a fallen MOS and you want to run /walk, light candle or cheer loudly from the sideline join our team!!
The Tunnel to Towers: 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.”
Share on social media and help us to get as many people to be involved as possible. If you have attended any of our events in the past, wear your Tunnel to Towers shirt or hat, post the picture, and tag your friends. Use our hashtag #T2TNeverForget.
It’s free to join us!!!! Just share this link with your friends and family:
