BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation
EVENT: T2T Tower Climb 2015
EVENT DATE: May 17, 2015
I was born in South America, in a country with all different weather (depending on how high you are above the sea) but no seasons. A very difficult topography with the longest mountain range ensured climbing was in my DNA- they were my playground, and when I climb atop one, I could make out countless others. And unavoidably I was saying to myself I have to climb this one and this one, and this one, and the problem with that is that always I want to go and see beyond my senses. So at an early age I decided to emigrate and explore beyond my boundaries, and I did not find anything more challenging and interesting than NYC. Almost 15 years ago I migrated to the US and today I want to invite you to join and support and honor the sacrifice of firefighter STEPHEN SILLER who laid down his life to save others on September 11, 2001. We also honor our military and first responders who continue to make the supreme sacrifice of life and limb for our country and the rebirth of this community.
