BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation
EVENT: New York City 2014
EVENT DATE: Sep 28, 2014
This team honors Captain William F. Burke, Jr. To me, he was and always will be, my Silly Uncle Billy. For others he was a great brother, friend, and collegue. To all of us, he is our hero.
So, we are going to raise some money in remembrance of Billy. The man who spent summers lifeguarding at Robert Moses Beach, being his nieces and nephews "Silly Uncle Billy", and reminding us we were never far from his mind via a homemade postcard. Two years ago some friends in the army ran wearing gas masks and carrying 80lb rucks and last year Billy's sister, my mom, Liz, walked with a badly torn rotator cuff. This means no excuses from anyone! Raise some money and participate because its an amazing experience!
