BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation
EVENT: New York City 2017
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2017
I look forward to doing this run every year. I do it to honor my uncle, I do it honor Stephen Siller, I do it to honor Welles Remy Crowther, and I do it for all the firefighters, police officers, port authority police officers that perished on 9/11/01. I am beyond thankful to all my friends who run along side me, reminding me that we're never alone. This run renews my hope that there are good people in this world willing to do good things. Thank you for encouraging me on my run and thank you to giving to a foundation that gives back in so many ways.

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.
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.
