THE STORY:

For those of my friends not familiar with this 5K, a little background on it... Among the promises made by Americans after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were to pay homage to those who perished, and to never allow the pride, heroism, and resilience displayed by Americans in the aftermath to be forgotten. The event is named in honor of Stephen Siller, a firefighter who, after his shift ended and was heading home, ran back, with all his gear, to NYC when he heard the call for help at the Trade Center. Stephen perished that day along with too many others. Among other things, this foundation raises money to build homes for our heros who've been disabled during the wars, fighting to protect our very freedom. As we near the 15th anniversary of 9/11, we continue to urge Americans to honor our first responders, all who lost their lives on that fateful day and those who have been catastrophically injured while fighting for the country. It’s imperative that we celebrate these heroes and honor their legacy forever. My personal note: 15 is a magical number for me this year...Greyson will be 15 later this September. As I sat at home that horrible day 15 years ago, very pregnant, I hoped and prayed he would not be born that day. I did not want him to have to celebrate his birthday in association with an event we can and should never forget. I signed up three years ago, but had to move that weekend. Last year, as many of you know by now, I was going through chemo treatments. This year, it will give me great pride to assist in a cause I truly believe in to whatever extent I can. Thank you my friends, for reading this through. I do NOT wish to pressure anyone to make a donation, but, if you so choose, then I thank you. Please feel free to share my post and page. (((HUGS)))
