I have been a Volunteer with the "Stephen Siller - Tunnel to Towers Foundation" going on six (6) years. What started out as doing a local 5K run, has turned into a full-time passion. I worked as the Volunteer Outreach Coordinator for T2T through our 2018 event. At the event, I was presented with the "Stephen Siller - 2018 Follow the Footsteps Award". Recently, I was made the Volunteer Co-Race Director for Orlando, and added to the national "Leadership Team" to assist other directors and staff.
My involvement began as a run to honor FDNY firefighter Jonathan Ielpi, Squad 288. He was one of the 343 firefighters who perished along with Stephen Siller. Jonathan is the son of my longtime friend and retired FDNY firefighter Lee Ielpi. Lee honored us with his presence at our annual Wine Social and Silent Auction in July 2018.
I trust that you will support my fundraising effort and make a donation to the "Foundation". Our motto is "Let Us Do Good". Thank you for your support.
