This year the Red, White, and Blue Bloods is looking forward to our second year running/walking for a great cause. As most of you are aware, September 11th is a special day for my very blue blood family. I am a child, niece, and cousin of first responders and have numerous friends (and friends of friends, and family of friends) who worked hard that day and the months/years following for our the same mission. My brother and sister have since followed the footsteps of our parents and have been serving for the city of NY for seven years this upcoming July. I could not be more proud of these people and the important work they have done that day, September 11th, and everyday since. This event is so important to me, especially as life gets busier, its a great day to come together to slow down and honor the fallen as well as support the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
Here are a few things most people do not know about the work of the Foundation: - The Foundation has allotted over $7 million in funding to support the families of First Responders who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
- Through our Smart Home Program the Foundation builds specially adapted homes for the nation’s most catastrophically injured service members. To date, we have built or are in the process of building 75 homes.
-Launching in September, the Gold Star Family Home Program will provide 1,000 Gold Star Families with a brand new, mortgage-free home. The Foundation has pledged $250 million to provide these families with the type of security they deserve.
Please consider donating to the Red, White, and Blue Bloods for the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers 5K Walk/Run on September 30th, 2018!
