Roland Rogers Elementary School held a Walk-a-thon on Friday, October 21, 2011 and raised $1,926 for the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
Every year, on the last Sunday in September, people from around the world gather for this memorial run to pay tribute to the memory of the heroic life and death of Firefighter Stephen Siller, his 342 FDNY brothers, first responders and all victims lost on 9/11.
This fundraiser will
•Help build HOMES for severely injured Servicemen and women
•Help Burn Centers across America heal our firefighters and burn victims
•Help bring hope to grieving Children.
The Foundation has established LET US DO GOOD PROGRAMS as a way to make a lasting and positive difference in the lives of others. These programs, In the Line of Duty and In the Name of Love, bring hope to grieving children, and healing to firefighters and families of our military, who sacrifice life and limb in the line of duty by supporting the Weill-Cornell Burn Center and Burn Centers across America, and restores shattered lives by building homes for surviving quadriplegic servicemen returning from combat.
