Our members participated at the annual Tunnels to Towers 5K in NYC.
Proudly participating today were Joe Laverty, Harrison Laverty Connor Beaton, Abby Terese, Anthony Duarte , and Lt. Lewis Moore III.
The Stephen Siller Tunnels to Towers 5k is a memory to commemorate the life of FDNY firefighter Stephen Siller and those lost on 9/11. Stephen Siller had just finished his shift on Squad 1 of the FDNY and was on his way to play golf with his brothers when he has gotten word of the plane striking the Twin Towers. Siller drove to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel which was closed so he strapped his gear to his back and ran to help aid in firefighting and rescue operations during 9/11. The proceeds raised for this run go to help various charities and benefit first responders.
