This is Andrew’s Avengers’ second annual participation in the Tunnel to Towers run! Our team runs in honor of our family hero, Andrew DiPadova. Our father Andrew is a retired member of the FDNY, who was diagnosed with leukemia in 2016 due to 9/11 exposure. In 2018, he underwent a bone marrow transplant and has since had several setbacks, including lymphoma and graft versus host disease. Throughout this journey, Andrew has continued to fight and will never give up.
Our team also runs to honor all those who were affected and who continue to be affected by 9/11. Their sacrifices will never be forgotten.
