It has long been on my bucket list to do a tower climb.  I now have the opportunity to do this at America's tallest building!!  102 stories up to the observation deck of 1 World Trade Center!!!   It is a huge endevor to undertake, but I have said that before with the NYC Marathon and because of the support of my family and friends - I have achieved the "unachieveable"!!

I am partipating in this event to remember those who we lost and in honor of those who came to the rescue of many on 9/11/01 now 15 years ago.  NEVER FORGET!!  Please donate to this fundraiser for the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation.  I am asking for a sponsor for each of 102 floors that I will be ascending to achieve my fundraising goal for this event.

I am also running up 1 World Trade Center to prove that Parkinson's disease will never slow me down or stop me from achieving my goals!!  #LetsCure PD

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 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 for answers to any other questions that we may not have addressed.

We will continue to update event details so please check back!
