Fleet Response Fund-raiser Helps Building for America's Bravest

February 10, 2015 - Press Release

Fleet Response raised $35,000 during a golf outing on Nov. 11 for a program that helps build homes for military service members returning home from active duty.

The funds will go to Building for America's Bravest (BFAB), as part of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. This is the second annual outing for the Southwest Florida Chapter.

Siller, a New York firefighter and father of five, perished in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Siller was on his way to meet his three brothers to play golf when he heard news on his scanner about the World Trade Center and rushed on foot to help. He was last seen with his brothers of Squad 1, all of whom died saving others.

"Fleet Response was honored to sponsor this golf outing, supporting such a great cause," said Ron Mawaka, Sr., founder of Fleet Response. "We're thrilled to be able to give back and help raise money for service men and women who have sacrificed so much for us, and in memory of one of America's true heroes."

BFAB is a program that builds Smart Homes for our most catastrophically injured service members returning home from duty. Each home is custom designed to address the unique needs of each individual, with easily accessible and adaptive technology to help those injured in service live a better, more independent life.

Fleet Response is a privately held company located in Cleveland with just over 100 employees. The golf outing in Fort Myers, Fla., helped raise money for a house built for USMC Cpl. Mike Nicholson of Tampa, a triple amputee by IED (improvised explosive device).
