The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation builds high-tech “smart homes” for injured service members, giving them greater independence. A triple amputee in Alpena received one in 2016 and there have been about 200 constructed across the country. In addition, the foundation has pledged more than $3.2 million to families of fallen first responders.Last year, the Jackson race raised $27,000 and organizers were recognized nationally for their contribution-event cost ratio.
