  3. This past Saturday (09/16/2017) I walked for Timothy at Lambeau Field, during the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb in Greeen Bay, Wisconsin. It was a very emotional climb for me as I thought of Timothy and how he helped others on that terrible day in American history. I’m very honored to have represented him during the climb. I will keep him and his family in my prayers. Much love and admiration to you Timothy and your family.
