'Jim Kerr Rock & Roll Morning Show' co-host Shelli Sonstein led a team of 21 Q104.3 listeners Sunday on a climb up 104 stories at the Tunnel To Towers World Trade Center Climb.
The team has so far raised over $19,000, with Shelli alone bringing in close to $13,000, thanks to listener donations.
This year's Tunnel To Towers climb marked the event's return after three years of cancellations.
Shelli completed the climb in 29 minutes and 59 seconds, besting her personal record by 5 minutes. She says she's most proud of the fundraising.
“I do this for all we lost on 9/11 and continue to lose to 9/11 illnesses," she said. "We have now lost more people to 9/11 illnesses than we lost ON 9/11”.
The Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation helps the families of 1st responders killed in action and builds homes for catastrophically-wounded veterans. They also pay off the mortgages of families with children of those first responders lost to 9/11 illnesses. Last week alone, four retired FDNY firefighters died of 9/11 illnesses.
