Eric Phillips wrote -The Tunnel to Towers Run was created to honor the life and legacy of 9/11 hero Stephen Siller, FDNY and his 342 brothers that sacrificed their lives to save others. On September 11, 2001, 34-year old firefighter Stephen Siller took his final heroic steps as he ran with 65 lbs of gear strapped on his back through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the World Trade Center to help save others. The Tunnel to Towers Run in NYC retraces Stephen’s footsteps on that fateful day. In running along his path, runners honor not only Stephen but also his firefighter brothers and all those who perished on 9/11. They will never be forgotten! Please join the members of 7th District as we honor these actions by running, sponsoring, or volunteering at this event.
