Nick was a ﬁreﬁghter who lost his life on 9/11/01 while saving others. We created this fund to honor him and to keep his memory alive. We continue his legacy of helping others by presenting, on an annual basis, a monetary award to two Port Richmond High School graduating student athletes, who will be going on to college. The criteria: They must have faced great adversity, conquered it and gone on to achieve!
ADRIANNA WESTCOTT RUNS STEPHEN SILLER’S NYC TUNNEL TO TOWER RUN AND DEDICATES HER RUN TO NICK’S MEMORY
Adrianna is 10 years old, and a daughter of one of Nick’s friends Laura Tierno Westcott. I received an e-mail from Laura recently telling me that her daughter wanted take part in Stephen Siller’s annual run, and she wanted to dedicate her run to Nick. She also wanted to raise money for Nick’s Fund, setting a goal of $1000.00. They set up a fundraising page at CrowdRise and went on to raise $1,114.00.
We felt that this was a really big deal and I wanted to share her story with all of you with some pictures. They met up with Jennifer Hall during their run. Jennifer was a former NYC Marathon Team member and she was wearing Nick’s Memorial Tee. They ran together and Jennifer will be noted in a picture with Adrianna. Adrianna is a special young lady, and Laura, her Mom, has done a wonderful job instilling such values. Thanks to both of you!
Adrianna’s fundraising page is still open to anyone who wishes to donate in support of her run.
