From the tunnel to the 5K tower in Princeton to raise funds for injured veterans

PRINCETON, NJ – This Saturday, Tunnel to Towers will host a 5k run and walk in Princeton. This run honors Stephen Siller, a Brooklyn firefighter who died saving others after the 9/11 terrorist attack.

This will be the second year of the Tunnel to Towers 5K at Princeton.

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation raises money to help injured first responders and veterans. 5K funds are used to pay off mortgages, build smart homes, and help the families of those injured or killed in the line of duty.

The Princeton 5K will start at 9:30 a.m. at the Carnegie Center. Participants who register for the 5K can help raise funds for The Tunnel to Towers programs.

During the event, organizers will honor and reward former Trenton firefighter Paul Tweedly, who now owns Captain Paul’s Firehouse Dogs in Lawrenceville.

Through his restaurant, Tweedly raises funds and awareness to help first responders and veterans.

Already registered participants will be able to pick up their kit on Friday, from 4 to 7 p.m., at Captain Paul’s Firehouse Dogs, 2230 Princeton Pike, Lawrence.

They will receive a free Italian gelato or ice cream cone when picking up their packets.

Registration is currently open. Participants can also register on the day of the event. To register click here.
