Event: 2015 Tunnel To Towers 5K Run & Walk - New York City Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation Sunday, September 27, 2015 9:30 AM Brooklyn, NY http://www.eventbrite.com/e/2015-tunnel-to-towers-5k-run-walk-new-york-city-registration-15331799826

Story: On September 11, 2001, NYC firefighter Stephen Siller had just gotten off the late shift at Squad 1, Park Slope, Brooklyn. He was on his way to play golf with his brothers when his scanner told of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers. When he heard the news, Stephen called his wife Sally and asked her to tell his brothers he would catch up with them later, and then returned to Squad 1 to get his gear. Stephen drove his truck to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, but it was already closed. So he strapped 60 lbs. of gear to his back, rushed on foot through gridlocked traffic and ran from the Tunnel to the Towers where he gave up his life while saving others. Stephen had everything to live for, a great wife, five wonderful children, devoted extended family and friends. Stephen’s parents were lay Franciscans and he grew up under the guiding philosophy of St. Francis of Assisi, “While we have time, let us do good.” Stephen’s life and heroic death serve as reminder to us all to live life to the fullest and to spend our time here on earth doing good – this is his legacy.

Cause: The Tunnel to Towers Foundation, created in memory of Stephen Siller, honors & supports our first responders and most catastrophically injured service members through a series of programs designed to help these heroes regain their independence. These initiatives range from building custom homes for the most catastrophically injured service people, to providing support for children who have lost a parent. http://tunnel2towers.org
