BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation
Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Run honors the FDNY firefighter who died attempting to save lives.
Stephen Siller, beloved husband and father of five, was a firefighter from Squad 1, Park Slope Brooklyn. On 9/11, he was off-duty, and on his way to golf with his 3 older brothers. When Stephen heard on his scanner that the World Trade Center had been hit, he turned his vehicle around and headed towards the site. When his truck was prohibited from entering the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, typical of him, he raced on foot towards the site with his gear strapped to his back. He was last seen alive on West and Liberty Streets where he, more than likely, went looking for his Squad, all of whom perished.
Firefighters are heros. We are running the Tunnel to Towers Run here in SC in support of firefighters who give their lives saving others.
