ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, FDNY FIREFIGHTER STEPHEN SILLER WAS ONE OF 343
DEPARTMENT MEMBERS WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES WHILE SAVING OTHERS.
WE HONOR THEIR SACRIFICE AND ALL 2,977 SOULS LOST THAT DAY.

Foundation has honored Stephen’s
legacy by supporting the heroes who
continue to risk life and limb in the line of duty.

The homes are for the Foundation’s program recipients.
Tunnel to Towers read the names of each of the 7,000+ names of military personnel who have
died in America’s response to September 11, 2001, the War on Terror. The ceremony took place
on Veterans Day at the Lincoln Memorial.
The Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk NYC, the Foundation’s signature event, returned bigger than
ever to retrace FDNY Firefighter Stephen Siller’s final footsteps 20 years later.
