BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation
EVENT: New York City 2017
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2017
Hi All! Sept 24th, 2017 I will be running the Tunnels To Towers run in New York City. On Sept 11th, Firefighter Stephen Gerard Siller was coming off of his shift when he learned about the first plane hitting the world trade center. He strapped on his 60lbs of gear back on and raced on foot through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers, where he gave up his life while saving others.
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.
