THE STORY:

We are running the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Run & Walk on September 28, 2014, to raise funds for the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. This foundation was started to honor the memory of, Stephen, a New York City firefighter FDNY).

On September 11, 2001, Stephen got off the late shift at Squad 1, Park Slope, Brooklyn. He was on his way to play golf with his brothers when his scanner told of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers. He then returned to Squad 1 to get his gear.

Stephen drove his truck to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, but it was already closed. So he strapped 60 lbs. of gear to his back, rushed on foot through gridlocked traffic and ran from the Tunnel to the Towers where he gave up his life while trying to save others.

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. The Foundation funds several programs, all which can be found on their website. One of the programs called Building for America’s Bravest, constructs specially adapted smart homes for our most catastrophically injured service members.
