Every day we enjoy our freedom and safety, most times without remembering those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to provide us those key liberties. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is an amazing foundation dedicated to assisting the families of those first responders who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in keeping us safe on a daily basis.
The Siller Family started the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to honor the memory of their brother, Stephen, a New York City firefighter (FDNY) who lost his life on September 11, 2001. The Foundation was built upon the mantra, “while we have time, LET US DO GOOD,” and continues Stephen’s legacy by supporting our nation’s first responders and service members.
Firefighter Stephen Siller lost his life while saving others. In his memory, the Tunnel to Towers Foundation developed the In the Line of Duty Program to honor the heroes that risk their lives every day. To date, the Foundation has spent over $100 million supporting the military and fallen first responders and their families.
As a part of the organization's first ever TCS New York City Marathon team I have pledged to raise at least $2,500 in support of the foundation and it's mission to support first responders and service members. This particular foundation is important to me as I have various relatives who are/were first responders and my brother is both a 911 dispatcher and volunteer firefighter in our hometown of Livingston, NJ.
Please help me in my goal to raise $2,500 for this amazing cause!!!
