This is an OPEN INVITATION to all members, their families and friends to join the JONES BEACH LIFEGUARD TEAM and participate in the 2014 Tunnel to Towers 5K Run/Jog/Walk to be held on Sunday, September 28th.

This event, which draws more than 25,000 people is conducted each year in honor of New York Fireman Stephen Siller and all those who perished on 9/11. Since then this event has grown to become a major nationwide initiative to provide financial assistance to the Wounded Warrior Project. The route retraces Stephen Siller’s run to the World Trade Center through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and finishes in the shadow of the new Freedom Tower where there is a free concert performed by Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band, free food and an experience you will never forget.

To register for the event you need to go online to and follow the instructions. All information related to the event (history, route, directions, other links, etc.) will be found on this site.

Should you wish to donate individually you will be directed to a link for

Select and press the top left picture showing New York, September 28th. On the next screen go to the upper left side and select Find a Team. Then on the following screen page type in Jones Beach Lifeguard Corps and press search. You will then be on the JBLC fundraising page. Once a donation is registered your name will appear on the team list (minimum $10).

Lastly, a group fundraising event has been scheduled for Sunday afternoon, September 21st at the Scuttlebutt Tavern in Wantagh from 3 to 6 pm.

Commemorative JBLC TUNNEL TO TOWERS T-SHIRTS will be sold for $20 ( these shirts will be worn at the Run to show our solidarity for this cause) and food/drinks will also be available for purchase.
We will also have a 50/50 contest to further our fundraising efforts. All proceeds from the afternoon will be donated to the Tunnel to Towers foundation in the name of the Jones Beach Lifeguard Corps.

While we will never forget our brothers who were lost on 9/11 we also want this event to be dedicated each year to a member of the Corps who has passed on since then.
For this 2014 Tunnel to Towers Run we will be honoring the memory of Chad T. Lundwall.

Come join us, let’s demonstrate our compassion for those who were lost, assist those who have defended our way of life, and participate together in the tradition of the JONES BEACH LIFEGUARD CORPS.
