SDIA to Participate in NYC’s “Tunnel to Towers Foundation Race” and Announce 2016 PTSD Awareness Campaign
Last week Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA) announced that we are putting together a team to run/walk the "Tunnel to Towers Foundation Race" (T2T) in New York City on Sunday, September 27, 2015. Our hope is to have as many of our members, volunteers and supporters from across the United States participate in this event as we prepare to launch a nationwide PTSD Awareness Campaign in 2016.
Tunnel to Towers was founded to retrace the final footsteps of 9/11 hero, firefighter Stephen Siller, and to support our nation’s first responders and military, all of whom make extraordinary sacrifices in the line of duty. On September 11, 2001, Siller had just gotten off the late shift at Squad 1 in Brooklyn when he heard of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers. He immediately returned to Squad 1 to get his gear and drove his truck to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel. The tunnel was already closed, so he strapped 60 lbs. of gear to his back, rushed on foot through gridlocked traffic and ran from the Tunnel to the Towers, where he gave up his life while saving others. This event is part of his legacy. For more information, visit the www.tunnel2towers.org.
We encourage all our members, volunteers and supporters to participate, whether by running/walking the Race or by making a donation. Donations will be used to sponsor 20+ combat wounded veterans and first responders injured in the line of duty at the Race and to provide funding for the 2016 PTSD Awareness campaign.
