Young Professionals Network

About Us  

The Tunnel to Towers Young Professionals Network is dedicated to connecting the younger generations to the mission of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation through events, fundraising, and professional mentoring to ensure we Never Forget.


In 2018 the YPN was founded by 11 young professionals whose life and work experience was varied and diverse but they all shared a passion for participating in and fundraising for the annual Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk NYC. Since then we have continued to grow and expand our network allowing us to better support the Foundation in their mission and programs.

The work of the YPN is carried out through three committees and supported by our Executive Board.

  • Events & Marketing Committee which is responsible for coordinating & developing impactful content & events while providing marketing support to all other committees.
  • First Responder Committee which supports the first responder and military community by engaging with communities via social media, service projects, and support at third-party events.
  • Recruitment Committee leads our efforts in expanding the group while also facilitating the interview and onboarding process for new members of our network

If you’re a young professional (21-40) with a passion for supporting our soldiers and first responders and dedicated to ensuring that we Never Forget the sacrifices made on September 11, 2001, then we encourage you to join us!
