BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation

EVENT: Tunnel to Towers Tower Climb NYC 2017

EVENT DATE: Jun 04, 2017

DAYS TO GO: 6

THE STORY:

Yup. I'm going to run up 100 flights of stairs for charity. Why? Because it's a great cause, and because I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed.

On 9/11/01, I was 3rd for takeoff on the runway at Newark Airport, on a United flight, headed to the west coast, when the first tower was hit. We never took off. I realize how close I was to not being here today, and I vowed to make sure I do everything I can to honor those who lost their lives, and those who fight every day to keep us safe. This is one way.

If you can, please donate a few bucks towards my climb. It'll go a long way towards helping this wonderful charity, named after a man who died helping others, on that terrible day, many years ago.

 

About the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation

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. In January 2015, the Foundation also raised over one million dollars to fully pay off the mortgages for the families of slain NYPD Officers Wenjian Liu and Luis Ramos.

Our Mission

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. 

Please email NYC@tunnel2towers.org for answers to any other questions that we may not have addressed.
