Tunnel to Towers Run–Best Physical Therapist NYC Volunteering

I volunteered at the Tunnel to Towers Run on September 30th.  I was asked to participate as a Certified Kinesio Tape Practitioner and was only one of two Physical Therapists and one of three CKTP’s.  The annual event was brought about because of Stephen Siller, the fireman who ran through the tunnels in search of his firehouse and to help at the WTC.  When he could not drive the firetruck through, he ran with all of his gear all the way through the tunnel and was never seen again.  The pictures are me with some Marines on the Semper Fi team who flew in from Hawaii and an Army cadet from West Point.  Diane is the other PT and CKTP.  Dr. Jeff Poplarski, Diane and myself were the only Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioners at the event.
