Stand with us and support The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Stephen Siller was a firefighter who had just came off shift and was on his way home to meet his brothers for a round of golf when the first attack on the trade center happened. Stephen called his wife and told her he was going back to Squad 1, to get his gear and help. The tunnels were shut down so he could not drive through , so Stephen got out if his truck, put his gear on and ran through the Brooklyn Tunnel to the World Trade Center Towers to help save people and not knowing his was making the ultimate sacrifice. From the point where Stephen began running to where he was last seen was the distance was 3.1 miles. You can learn more on the Foundation‘s link.
We support this campaign because the money raised helps First Responder families and Disabled Military Veterans. The money helps families of these fallen heros with mortgage free homes and smart homes for disabled veterans. You can show support by making a monetary donation to the foundation and you could also join us at the Myrtle Beach Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation 5k Run/Walk. We hope you help support this cause and hope to see you at the starting line!
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. The Foundation was built upon the mantra, “while we have time, LET US DO GOOD,” and continues Stephen’s legacy by supporting our nation’s first responders and service members.
Firefighter Stephen Siller lost his life while saving others. In his memory, the Tunnel to Towers Foundation developed the In the Line of Duty Program to honor the heroes that risk their lives every day. To date, the Foundation has spent over $100 million supporting the military and fallen first responders and their families. Our newest addition, the Gold Star Family Home Program, honors those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country by providing the surviving spouses and young children with a brand new, mortgage-free home.
The Smart Home Program provides mortgage-free smart homes to our most catastrophically injured service members. Each home is custom designed to address the unique needs of each individual.
Finally, the Fallen First Responder Home Program pays off the remaining mortgages for families left behind when a firefighter or police officer is killed in the line of duty. Upon hearing news of the tragic loss of a first responder, Tunnel to Towers deploys a rapid response team to immediately provide support to the family.
Your hard work on behalf of the Foundation helps us provide the support the families of our military and first responders so desperately need.
