Mike’s father is NYPD Deputy Chief Vincent DeMarino who died of 9/11 related brain cancer on December 6, 2019.

Chief DeMarino was one of the thousands of first responders who spent months down at Ground Zero during the rescue and recovery efforts made by first responders after the September 11 attacks.

“Our Never Forget Collection honors the sacrifices made by our fallen heroes. We want people to wear this shirt proudly and let it serve as a reminder to never forget the selfishness and bravery of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice,” shared Mike DeMarino.

Mike has always been familiar with the Tunnel to Towers Foundation’s mission to do good by supporting America’s greatest heroes and their families; he ran in the 5K Run & Walk NYC a few of times. ”

I ran the 5k two years ago. While running I remember passing the photos of all of the 9/11 heroes who died in the line of duty, passing the FDNY and NYPD boats and seeing my fellow first responders run in full gear“, said Mike. “It was an unforgettable experience for me that inspired me to do more for the Foundation.

The DeemedFit team is participating in the 5K Run & Walk NYC this year. Supporting first responders and their families is a cornerstone in their mission. Visit their fundraising page here.
