Tunnel to Towers 5K Run Part 1
For the run, participants retrace the last footsteps that FDNY firefighter Stephen Siller took on that devastating day in an effort to help survivors. "People from all walks of life were participating in the run. There were teams of marines, veterans, firefighters, and families that were wearing t-shirts bearing the name of the person that perished," she says. "As runners emerged from the tunnel, many stopped to shake hands with firefighters bearing a flag, representing a fallen coworker from their squadron or battalion. The crowd along the route was very encouraging and cheering constantly, especially for those that were participating with their prosthesis." See more photos of the 5k Tunnel to Tower run here.
