On September 11th, firefighter Stephen Siller was on his way to play golf with his brothers on that bright clear day when his scanner told of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers. He returned to Squad 1 to get his gear, then took his final heroic steps to the World Trade Center. When Stephen drove his truck to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, it was already closed to traffic . With sixty pounds of gear strapped to his back, he ran through the Tunnel, hoping to meet up with his own company, Squad 1.
The Run/Walk is approximately 5K or 3.1 Miles
Date: Sunday, September 25th, 2011
Start Time: 9:30 AM
