BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation
EVENT: New York City 2016
EVENT DATE: Sep 25, 2016
Friends and family, on September 25th I will be participating in the 2016 Tunnel to Towers 5k run in NYC. Currently I am starting a fundraising page, where proceeds are used by the Tunnel to Towers foundation to support programs which honor our first responders and military personnel who make extraordinary sacrifices in the line of duty, including the Building for America’s Bravest.
Information on this foundation can be found on their website here https://ourbravest.org
or even better can be shown in the following video
My goal is to raise at least $250. If this goal is met I will be running the Tunnels to Tower 5K in my full firefighter turn out gear. This gesture is to remeber the sacrifice of vent honors firefighter Stephen Siller who, determined to carry out his duty, strapped 60 lbs. of gear to his back, and raced on foot through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers, where he gave up his life while saving others.
Please consider donating. Even the smallest donation will make an incredible impact on those who sacrifice everything to keep us safe.
