This year has been a tough one for the local first responders community, but people from all across the Gulf Coast have come together to give back. In just a few short weeks, there will be another opportunity to honor our heroes from across the nation.
It is almost time for the annual Tunnel to Towers 5K Run, Walk, and Climb. This will be the fourth year for the event presented by Margaritaville.
The event takes place on Saturday, September 14th. The run will start in Ocean Springs and will end at the Margaritaville Resort.
After the run is over, there will be live music and fireworks at the resort. It will be a great time to honor and remember our first responders.
Margaritaville Communications Manager Noel McCann said, “Well, we are about community here. It was really beautiful the way the City of Biloxi came together to support the family of Officer (Robert) McKeithen. We really honor and want to pay tribute to him, his family, and all of the other brave men and women who really make our lives so much safer.”
