THE STORY:

Melissa Wlliams wrote -

We honor Stephen Siller's ultimate sacrifice and the sacrifices of 342 other fallen heroes of 9/11, as well as our veterans who have sacrificed life and limb. Running through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, retracing Stephen's brave and selfless steps on 9/11 is an incredibly humbling experience. Running along side firefighters and military personnel in full gear and especially amputee vets who lead the run is indescribable. Stephen had just gotten off duty, he heard about the Twin Towers attack on his scanner, so he went back to his fire company but when he arrived, they had already left. He suited up in 60lbs of gear, and ran through the gridlocked tunnel (1.7 miles long.) After exiting the tunnel, he was picked up by another fire company and courageously fought the devastation that everyone else was running from. He lost his life along with 342 other firefighters. The money raised by this incredible foundation has helped many of our amputee veterans live independently in Smart Homes, as well as many other causes such as burn centers and assisting those who were devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Please help us on "Team Never Forget" make a difference in the lives of those who sacrifice for all of us. Thank you for your support! xox
