The Tunnel to Towers Foundation supports the nation’s first responders, veterans, and their families by bringing hope through mortgage-free homes. The foundation is expanding its T2T Student-Athlete Advocate Program, adding three new student partners.
The T2T Student-Athlete Advocate program connects current student-athletes to the mission of the foundation by delivering critical messages to younger Americans to ensure we “Never Forget” the sacrifices first responders and military members make for our country every day. The partnerships also help the athletes expand their personal brands.
The three students now joining the initiative are:
Kailyn Hart, a junior lacrosse player at Stony Brook University from North Babylon, New York
Chris Cannizzaro, a senior baseball player at Bucknell University from Staten Island, New York
Nick Eiler, a junior basketball player at Hartwick College from Highland Mills, New York
Those three athletes join Appalachian State football player Stuart Head as the inaugural T2T Student-Athlete Advocates.
In a released statement from the foundation, Kailyn Hart says “I’m thrilled to become an ambassador for this foundation and I’m excited for what the future holds. I think it’s so important that the younger generation never forgets the service and sacrifice that our first responders made on 9/11 and those who served our country afterwards.”
Tunnel to Towers Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit registered in the US.
