BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation
EVENT: New York City 2015
EVENT DATE: Sep 27, 2015
Every year I participate in the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers 5k benefiting the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. On 9/11 Firefighter Stephen Siller had just finished a late night shift when he received word that a plane had hit the Twin Towers; answering the call, he put on his full gear and ran through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel toward his fate, all in an effort to save others.
Every year as I trace his footsteps, I am reminded of the sacrifices that so many men and women make for the safety of others. Additionally, I am inspired by how much good has come out of this tragic event. This foundation has helped numerous people; building houses for disabled Vets...offering relief in the moments following Hurricane Sandy...raising funds to pay the mortgages of slain NYPD Officers Liu & Ramos...the list continues.
I hope you'll join me by donating, sharing or running beside me. There is no amount too large or too small. Spread the word and let us do some good.
