the team participated in the official “Tunnels to Towers” race in Lower Manhattan. All proceeds from the race and parent foundation go towards helping previous or fallen first responder’s families’ living costs.
Stephen Siller was a firefighter who on 9/11 was playing golf with his brothers when he received the call about the Twin Towers being attacked. He immediately drove to the Brooklyn Tunnel and left his vehicle at the road block. He proceeded to run through the 2 mile tunnel in 60 lbs of gear where he later sacrificed his life at the towers.
Thank you to @adelphisb , @adelphifh , and friends for volunteering and participating in the 5k run which retraces the FDNY Firefighter Stephen Siller’s final footsteps on 9/11 from the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers.
