Suzanne Bergen leads Yoga On Tap September 12th

  • Yoga On Tap 4150 Yancey Road Charlotte, NC, 28217 United States (map)

Competing in stair climbs across the country, Suzanne is currently ranked among the top 10 female tower runners in the U.S. and ranks 2nd in her age group. She and her husband, Joe, are currently the volunteer race directors of The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Stair Climb held at the Duke Energy Center. This years climb is on Saturday, April 29th beginning at 8:00am. 

The Siller Family started the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to honor the memory of their brother, Stephen, a New York City firefighter (FDNY) who lost his life on September 11, 2001 after strapping on his gear and running through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers. The goal of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is to continue Stephen’s legacy by supporting our nation’s first responders and service members. Building for America’s Bravest, a proud program of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, constructs specially adapted smart homes for our most catastrophically injured service members. 

The mission of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is to honor the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller, who laid down his life to save others on September 11, 2001. We also honor our military and first responders who continue to make the supreme sacrifice of life and limb for our country. 

 

What does 343 mean to you? That’s the number of firemen who died on September 11th. To celebrate these heroes and honor their legacy, join Suzanne in climbing the Duke Energy Center in April. All are encouraged to register for the climb and to form a team. For more information and to register, visit https://www.crowdrise.com/T2TTowerClimbCharlotte. 

 

By incorporating the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga together, her classes at Charlotte Yoga link the application of alignment, meditation, intention and prayer, creating an inner journey towards healing and empowerment.
