SAVE THE DATE
Lead The Way Fund's​
5th Annual​
"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!

When: Sunday, November 20, 2011 (Registration begins at 9 am)
What: 4.5 mile run/walk down the Hudson River Park, aka "Hero Highway"
Where: Start at Pier 46 (Charles St.) and run/walk to the entrance of Battery Park and back
Post Race: Head to The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers for a celebratory brunch, plenty of drink and live music
Who: You, your family, your friends, your colleagues and any other local patriots.
Attire: Race shirts will be distributed but patriotic attire is encouraged. Prize for best patriotic costume

Humble request: if someone here who is also a member at www.armyranger.com/bb could post it there, I would be most appreciative. For whatever reason, the systems where I am currently deployed will not allow me to log in there. Many thanks in advance for the assist, apologies for the errand request.

So, is there any chance that I can get a heads up on who's all going to this? My girlfriend and I will be attending and would like to link up pre-post run. Especially with other members here. Thanks in advance!

I don't think I'll be able to make it this time. :(
WHAT! Hollywood is really getting to you D; first you're running off to some marathon for Virgins and now your passing on the great annual drunken debacle. Geez.... you're not thinking of going 'Vegan' on us any time soon are you? ( ... tell Oprah or whomever to reschedule)

Sorry, nothing that dramatic is going on! Because I'll be in VA running the race the previous weekend, I have to go upstate with the hubby the weekend of the fundraiser.

I'm really looking forward to it. A couple of us will be rucking it again this year, we are just carrying 40lbs this year, a 60+ lb ruck is a real hassle when you are trying to take it home when you're drunk lol

I just got back from this. Wow, this year was really a step up from the others and the others were great.
There were a shitload of rangers there this year, including the assistant commander of the Ranger Regiment and a bunch of wounded Rangers from Bethesda. Also a Ranger Hall Of Famer Gary Dolan.
Unfortunately not as good a turn out from SS as past years but a couple of new faces who were blown away at this event.
Seriously guys, if you were a Ranger or a service member of any description this is something you want to attend. It is a far more moving and intense day than even Memorial day or Veterans day. It is extremely personal, moving and fun.

So, is there any chance that I can get a heads up on who's all going to this? My girlfriend and I will be attending and would like to link up pre-post run. Especially with other members here. Thanks in advance!

Did you go? I was there all day pissed that I hadn't given you my ph number.

Pics were taken, when I get them I'll post them.

Rudy, sorry you couldn't make it this year mate.
