Who We Are

Our Team

Dave Fortier

Dave is a survivor of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. Dave was running his very first marathon to help support a dear friend dealing with cancer when he was injured by the first bomb. He suffered shrapnel wounds and hearing loss. He has since gone on to run 18 additional marathons in Boston, Paris, New York, Florida and Washington DC. Dave’s passion for helping other survivors of terror and trauma eventually led him to found the One World Strong Foundation, where he now serves as President.


Stephanie N. Cinque, MSW

Stephanie is the founder and Executive Director at The Resiliency Center of Newtown (RCN). RCN is an organization that opened in response to the December 14, 2012 tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The center offers free trauma-informed non-traditional therapeutic services and a safe space for people to gather and heal.
