Description


What is a Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk?

The Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk Series was created to honor the heroic life and death of Stephen Siller, 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.

Honor all of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and support our first responders and military who make extraordinary sacrifices in the line of duty! For more information on the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation please visit www.tunnel2towers.org

This is the second year we are holding an event in Forest City. We will be honoring local fallen Firefighter Eric Hosette. 100% of the proceeds raised at all three events will be donated to help support his family. It is just one of 3 events in Iowa. The other two are in the third year; Sioux City will take place on September 22, 2019 and Ankeny/Des Moines will take place on November 10, 2019.
