BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation
EVENT: T2T Tower Climb 2015
EVENT DATE: May 17, 2015
On May 17, 2015 Ryan and I are participating in the first ever Tunnel to Towers Foundation Climb to the top of the Freedom Tower in NYC. The foundation was created in honor of the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller who sacrificed his life to save others on September 11, 2001; the foundation also honors our military and first responders.This climb benefits disabled veterans who need our help. On September 11, 2015, Ryan and I did not know each other, but we met two years later. He was based in London at the time, but as a Swaps broker he was linked to NY and was corresponding with colleagues who were working in the WTC and neighboring buildings. I was living in Battery Park and working at American Express in the World Financial Center. My family, friends and I lost dear friends on that day. Having been right there, I can only describe it as hell. This documentary highlights the courageous and caring who came to the waterfront to help us escape.
