26.2 for 343
My boys and I celebrating after a 5 mile road race.
26.2 FOR 343 I realized at an early age the fire service industry is something greater than just a job and it was something I knew I wanted to be a part of. This was something I learned from my dad who has been a volunteer firefighter for over 35 years. For that reason I chose to follow in his foot steps and became a junior volunteer firefighter at the age of 16 and ultimately made it my career choice. I quickly felt it was not just a career choice but a calling. The relationship between me and my fellow fire fighters is best described as a Brotherhood. Ten years ago I learned just how deep the Brotherhood runs. September 11, 2001 changed a lot of things for those of us in the fire service. 343 members of the FDNY made the ultimate sacrifice on that day to save the lives of thousands of people at the World Trade Center. I traveled to New York about two months after September 11, 2001 with three close friends. We spent time at ground zero and with fire fighters throughout the city. The firefighters we met and our experiences confirmed for us just how amazing the Brotherhood is. To honor the Brotherhood I am proud to be a part of I will be running in the 2011 ING NYC Marathon in remembrance of the 343 members of the FDNY that lost their lives, of those who were on the job that day and worked the week and months following, and for all of my brother firefighters on the job today. I will be running in the Marathon as a member of the Leary Firefighters Foundation’s Team LFF. Team LFF is a participating charity in the 2011 ING New York City Marathon. As a member of Team LFF, I am raising funds for the Foundation. The Foundation has donated numerous training aids, technology, and equipment to help make the fire service safer for all of us. You can visit learyfirefighters.org for more information. I have set my fund raising goal at $3000.00.In order to meet my goal I am asking for your help and support through donations. All donations made are tax deductable and all money raised will go to the Leary Firefighters Foundation. Please help me in reaching my goal of running 26.2 for 343. Thank you in advance for you support. Sincerely, Kevin M. Preston
