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.
