Anyone traveling earlier today along Pelham Parkway, was sure to run into the annual Lt. Thomas Clesse 5K run. The event has been conducted annually since 2002 in honor of Lt. Clesse of the 49th Precinct. He was a local first responder who lost his life due to cancer after exposure to toxins during the 9/11 terrorist attack. Over 80 participants ran along Pelham Parkway in honor of our local hero and all other 9/11 first responders who risked their lives to save others. Kudos to everyone who helped keeps the tradition alive.
