Kelsie Wilkinson's Fundraiser:

Gentle Giants

THE STORY:

This team is in memory of my dad, Glenn Wilkinson, who died heroically on 9/11 and was a Lieutenant with E-238 of the FDNY. The team name Gentle Giants comes from his nickname around his firehouse, the gentle giant.

On Sept. 11 2001, he had ordered his men out of the south tower, then discovered one man missing. He was on his way back into the tower to rescue the missing firefighter when the tower collapsed. He didn't make it, but all his men survived. I couldn't be any prouder of him.

To the world he became a hero on 9/11, but he was a hero to his family and those who knew him long before 9/11 by the way in which he lived his life. I am lucky to call him my dad and am excited to do this run in his honor.

"It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice."

Thank you to everyone who joins and donates to this team! :)
