BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation
The Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk series has grown by leaps and bounds. Our signature event, the annual Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk in New York City, which is held on the last Sunday in September, started with 1,500 people in 2002 and attracted over 25,000 last year. Retracing Stephen’s last footsteps has become symbolic of the “Let us do Good” attitude of all participants. Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walks have been held around the world, including London and Afghanistan. Proceeds from the events are used by the Foundation to support programs which honor our first responders and military personnel who make extraordinary sacrifices in the line of duty, including the Building for America’s Bravest program. Among the promises made by Americans after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were to pay homage to those who perished, and to never allow the pride, heroism, and resilience displayed by Americans in the aftermath to be forgotten.
