BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation
EVENT DATE: Sep 19, 2014
I can not confidently say that I'm a fabulous runner. I can't even confidently say that I'm good at running. Since starting my freshman year though, I've been on a treadmill every day, shaving time off my mile and working to become a "fabulous runner." I'm running my first 5K this Friday, and while it's definitely going to help me become a better runner, this 5K is about way more than my personal record times.
Firefighter Stephen Siller lost his life on September 11th, 2001 in order to save others (you can check out his full and totally inspirational story at http://tunnel2towers.org/stephens-story/ ). The mission of Tunnels to Towers 5K is to honor this man's life, and the military and first responders who continuously risk and loses their lives to protect our freedom. When I set up this page, a monetary value was required as to how much I wanted to raise, but in all honesty, I'm just asking you all to donate what you can. Anything from $5 to $50 is more than nothing. Thanks for everything y'all :)
