Join us for the 2019 Tunnel to Towers Foundation 5K in memory of FDNY Lt. Christopher "Goose" Raguso, MSgt. USAF, who heroically gave his life for our country while serving with the New York Air National Guard in Iraq in 2018. He leaves behind his wife Carmela, two beautiful daughters Eva and Mila, his parents Laura and John, brother Marc, extended family and countless friends.
The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation immediately stepped into action, and raised over $700,000 in just two weeks to pay off the mortgage for the Raguso family home, as well as the home of Tech Sgt. Dashan Briggs, who perished alongside Chris in the crash.
We invite you to run with Team Raguso "Goose" on September 29 in the 2019 Tunnel to Towers 5K Run/Walk in New York City and to help us support the Tunnel to Towers Foundation and the incredible support they provide to the families of fallen FDNY, military and first responders.

About the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation
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. Our newest addition, the Gold Star Family Home Program, honors those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country by providing the surviving spouses and young children with a brand new, mortgage-free home.
The Smart Home Program provides mortgage-free smart homes to our most catastrophically injured service members. Each home is custom designed to address the unique needs of each individual.
Finally, the Fallen First Responder Home Program pays off the remaining mortgages for families left behind when a firefighter or police officer is killed in the line of duty. Upon hearing news of the tragic loss of a first responder, Tunnel to Towers deploys a rapid response team to immediately provide support to the family.
Your hard work on behalf of the Foundation helps us provide the support the families of our military and first responders so desperately need.
