This Sunday is the Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk, which honors the heroism of fireman Stephen Siller. On 9/11, 34-year-old Stephen Siller had the day off, but when he heard about the first plane hitting the World Trade Center, he ran through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel on foot with 60 pounds of equipment. Stephen ultimately lost his life helping those in need, so his siblings started the Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk as a tribute to his selflessness.
For years, Hope For The Warriors has participated in the event, demonstrating our commitment to the sacrifices of so many service men and women who lay their lives down for our safety every day. More information on the Tunnel to Towers 5K can be found on the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation website.
