Never Forget: Bethel HS Hosting Tunnel to Towers 5K
It's hard to believe that almost 20 years have passed since that horrible day. Every day that I go into the studio here at the radio station, I see two reminders of September 11, 2001. The huge Flag of Honor, which has all of the names of those who were taken from us, and the front page of the New York Post from the day after, are proudly displayed in the i95 studio. Most everything else has changed over the course of the past 20 years here, but that New York Post will never leave, it's a piece of history that none of us will take down.
I pay attention to any event associated with helping anyone out that has been affected by the attacks on the World Trade Center. A great non-profit that has directly helped out the families of 9/11 fallen and injured first responders, military heroes, and their families, to the tune of over $250 million dollars so far, is a Foundation named Tunnel to Towers. The family of NYC Fireman Stephen Siller, who gave his life helping others that horrible day, have done incredible work in Stephen's name since. Tunnel to Towers Foundation has raised over $250 Million dollar, and with that, the donations have helped to provide 250 Mortgage-free homes, among many other meaningful actions, to families that lost so much that day. That is incredible.
On Sunday, June 27, 2021, Tunnel to Towers Foundation is holding a 5K Run and Walk in Bethel, CT at Bethel High School. The event starts at 8:30AM. The Foundation and the event's goal is to raise $10,000 for Tunnel to Towers. I hope you can help out and donate, or volunteer, if you can, for this great cause.
