CST Partner, Kathy Jensen, Completed 3-Day Charity Run in Honor of 9/11 Victims
Over 60 athletes completed a 3 day charity run known as the 9/11 Promise Run. This event honors the inspiring victims and heroic first responders of the September 11th, 2001 attacks.
Among the athletes was CST Partner, Kathy Jensen, and her husband. Participants ran alongside the CEO and employees of the exceptional veteran-owned, run, and operated business Flags of Valor. The groups covered a 240-mile journey from the Pentagon to Ground Zero in only 72 hours. Each runner was committed to cover approximately 30 to 35 miles over the 3 day period (September 9th -11th). This year, participants raised over $65,000 for Hope for the Warriors- a nonprofit organization that aides post 9/11 service members, veterans, and their families to reestablish their sense of self and hope.

CST commends each participant for honoring the thousands of victims lost and all heroic first responders who risked their lives to save others. CST is also proud to have a member of their own team participate in such a valiant effort to #NeverForget.
