My initial involvement with the Tunnel to Towers Foundation began by wanting to pay tribute to FDNY Firefighter Jonathan Ielpi of Squad 288, who perished on 9/11. I grew up with Jonathan's father Lee, who is retired from FDNY. I registered for the 5K and as I have told people, "You don't run this race, you experience it." We must "Never Forget" the sacrifice the 343 FDNY members made that day along with NYPD and PAPD officers. Please help me to reach my goal and help the Tunnel to Towers Foundation continue their work to build "smart" homes for our most catastrophically injured veterans. Thank You.
