Lead The Way Fund's
"A RUN DOWN HERO HIGHWAY"
Sunday, November 20, 2011
Dear Supporters of The Lead The Way Fund and fellow patriots,
Another year has passed and the LTWF's annual Run/Walk Down Hero Highway is rapidly approaching! Thanks to your continued support and attendance, this event gets bigger and better each year and our 5th Annual is sure to outshine them all. As per standard, the run will take place on West St. past the hallow grounds of the World Trade Center in view of her Lady Liberty. Having outgrown our previous post-race celebration venue, this year the party will now take place at the beautiful Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers.
In addition to the live music, food and beverages, the day will also include moving presentations from some of our Nation's heroes, outstanding raffle prizes and tons of Lead The Way gear! We are also exceptionally pleased to announce that Phil Taylor from the American Fallen Soldiers Project (formed to provide comfort and healing to the mourning families of our fallen military men and women through incredible portrait renditions) will be presenting an original portrait to the family of beloved fallen Rangers and a first responder.
Below you will find some initial details about the day so you can Save the Date, plan accordingly and spread the word!
