THE STORY:

Why We Understand The Need


I am probably best known as "Detective Alvarez" from the FOX prime time hit series Gotham! I'm a Marine combat veteran turned actor, singer, activist who is still actively serving the great state of New York as an MTA Police Officer (YES - I play a Detective on TV and I'm a Cop in real life!)


Beyond honored to represent all of our cast & crew members from Gotham and prouder to represent all who still wear the uniform of First-Responder and of course our active/reserve/retired military members and all who have so bravely made the ultimate sacrifice and their families who carry the burden for all of us.


I dedicate my run to the memories of NYPD Detective Rafael Ramos and my friend US Navy Seal CPO Chris Kyle!


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 after strapping on his gear and running through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers. 

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. Building for America’s Bravest, a proud program of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, constructs specially adapted smart homes for our most catastrophically injured service members. In January 2015, the Foundation also raised over one million dollars to fully pay off the mortgages for the families of slain NYPD Officers Wenjian Liu and Luis Ramos.

Our Mission

The mission of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is to honor the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller, who laid down his life to save others on September 11, 2001. We also honor our military and first responders who continue to make the supreme sacrifice of life and limb for our country. 

Please email NYC@tunnel2towers.org for answers to any other questions that we may not have addressed.
