Join Kathryn Butare and Support Tunnel to Towers

Join Kathryn Butare, Marketing Coordinator at Thornton Tomasetti and show your appreciation for our heroes on the frontline! For the past year, Kathryn has been volunteering for the Young Professionals Network (YPN) of the Tunnel 2 Towers Foundation – a foundation that normally pays off mortgages or builds smart homes to servicemen/women who die or get injured in the line of duty serving our country. Last week, the foundation pledged to provide at least 3 million dollars to support our healthcare heroes serving on the front line- providing them with meals, personal protective equipment, and, financial relief through temporary mortgage payments on their  home should a health care worker lose their life to COVID-19 and leave behind young children and a family.

To support this effort, Kathryn is participating in a virtual 135 mile run all across NYC –- in an effort to raise money for this amazing cause! If anyone is able to donate to support this amazing effort- to show our appreciation for our heroes on the frontlines, keeping our beloved city safe, any amount, no matter how little will have a direct positive impact on helping out those who are risking their lives to help us.
