Thanks to @grinderrowing for another #rowtohonor row 💙🇺🇸💙 Repost from @grinderrowing using @RepostRegramApp - NYPD Detective Joe Paolillo spent weeks combing through the remnants of the World Trade Center site searching for survivors and remains in the aftermath of the September 11th Terror Attacks. His brother, FDNY Deputy Chief John Paolillo was on Floor 52 of the North Tower when it collapsed. While he was assigned to this detail, Detective Paolillo contracted a rare form of cancer directly linked to the air at ground zero. He succumbed to this cancer on his EOW date of September 9, 2019. He was the 87th LODD death this year. He is survived by his wife Josephine, and his children Martin, John, and Raymond.
Detective Joe Paolillo’s Honor Workout - 44 push-ups, 6573m@18sr , 43 push-ups for a total of 87. The 6573 meters is one meter in remembrance of every day from 9/11 to his EOW. The stroke rate also honors the nearly 18 years that passed. As a flight crew member, I also felt it was my duty to honor the memory of the eight pilots and twenty-five flight attendants lost that day as well. They received thirty-three kettlebell swings and also are not forgotten. @rowtohonor #rowtohonor #rowforpurpose #nypd #fdny #alpa #apa #afa #united #american #sub7irc #darkhorserowing @bangenergy #inov8training @concept2inc #concept2 #concept2rower #erglife #rowing #rudern #remo #aviron #rowinglife #stlouisrowingclub - 7 minutes ago
