On 9/11, 34-year-old firefighter Stephen Siller had the day off. When he heard the first plane had hit the World Trade Center, he raced to his firehouse, threw on 60 pounds of equipment and drove to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel which he then ran through on foot. He was last seen on West Street and like so many others, never made it home. Stephen’s siblings started the Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk as a memorial tribute to his heroism. The event supports children who have lost a parent, firefighters and military who have been seriously injured and sacrificed their quality of life in the line of duty. Funds raised through the T2T are distributed to burn centers to support fellow firefighters who have been injured in the line of duty, scholarship programs for children who have lost parents in Iraq and Afghanistan and the construction of Smart Homes for military returning home with devastating injuries, as well as several other charities for the police department, armed services and other first responders. You may have also read about them earlier this year when they raised sufficient money to pay off the mortgages of the Officer Ramos and Officer Liu, 2 NYC Police officers who were recently killed sitting in their in police car. In support of our First Responders, Wells Fargo Securities and Wells Fargo Capital Finance will be participating in the Stephen Siller Tunnels to Tower Run and Walk event that will be taking place on Sunday, September 27th in New York City. This Run/Walk follows Stephen Siller’s route to Ground Zero alongside firemen, police, military personnel and veterans. Those who have done this before have universally said it is a humbling and moving experience. This foundation does so much good for those who risk everything to help us from our military to first responders. Please help us help them!
