Tunnel to Towers
Sept. 11 was a day off for firefighter Stephen Siller, who was on his way to New Jersey to play golf when he heard about a fire at the World Trade Center. He turned his car around and headed there, only to be stopped at the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel. So Siller left his vehicle and ran through the tunnel; he made it to the buildings, where he died in the line of duty. In memory of that run, his siblings organized the annual Tunnel to Towers 5K race in 2002. The event has since raised $10.5 million for burn centers, injured soldiers, and children who have lost one or both parents.
