10 year old Zechariah is dedicating his passion of running to honor our fallen Law Enforcement Officer's (LEO's). To do this, Zechariah will run 1-mile for every fallen officer who lost their lives while on duty in both 2018 and 2019. He also is hoping to raise $100 for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation in memory of each fallen officer in 2018, which when multiplied by 150 officers we lost in 2018 makes his goal this year $15,000.
Last year, Zechariah raised $11,250 for the foundation, and is dedicated to carrying on the honor of Stephen Siller, Walwyn Stuart and all our fallen First Responders from 9/11.
Stephen Siller was a New York Firefighter. On 9/11, he was off duty and heading to a golf outing with his brothers when he heard of the terrorist attacks. He immediately turned his truck around, grabbed his gear and headed for the towers. When he arrived at the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, he found it closed to through traffic. Stephen grabbed his gear and ran through the tunnel to the towers where he lost his life trying to save others. The foundation carries on his commitment to do good by helping our Military and First Responder Heroes.
Please consider joining Zechariah and helping him do good for a foundation that truly goes above and beyond for our Military and First Responders.
