My name is Lillith and I'm in the 9th grade. I originally began working with Tunnel to Towers over 5 years ago when me and some of my friends raised over $3000 to help put a smart shower in a smart home built in Alpena, Michigan for SSG Ben Eberle. Did you know it takes more than $500K to build a smart home, even with a lot of donated materials? But it's worth every dollar when our catastrophically injured veterans can finally live a comfortable life in their own home. It was such an inspirational experience I have been working with the foundation ever since. Over those 5+ years, we have raised almost $50k for the organization. Two years ago, we participated in the NYC T2T 5k and had an incredible experience I will never forget. This October will be our 4th annual Berkley T2T 5k and I am excited to be one of the Youth Directors, along with my friend Amaya, and continue to help raise awareness and support the organization.
