Jimmy’s Run Down Hero Highway
Sunday, November 16, 2014 – New York City
Jimmy’s Run Down Hero Highway, now in its 7th year, will take place on Sunday, November 16th! Last year over 1,100 people joined us for this patriotic and family-friendly 4.5 mile Fun Run/Walk/Stroll and celebratory brunch which pays tribute to our Hero, and beloved friend to so many, SGT James J. Regan. Attendees of all ages will revel in a day filled with moving tributes, amazing camaraderie and great food & drink to help raise money for Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund in support of the men and families of the 75th Ranger Regiment. All proceeds from the day go to support the families of our US Army Rangers who have been killed, disabled or are currently serving in harm’s way around the world.
Starting at Pier 46 (Registration begins at 9:30am), participants will come together for a spirited trip along the West Side Highway, past Ground Zero, and in constant view of Lady Liberty. The festivities continue with a post-race celebratory brunch at the beautiful Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers. Those not interested in participating in the Run/Walk can check-in directly at The Lighthouse.
We are honored to partner again with The American Fallen Soldiers Project to present hand-painted original portraits to the families of two beloved Fallen Rangers. We hope you will join us as we honor those heroes and their families who gave it all to protect our freedom.
