Tunnel to Towers 5K (The Trip of a Lifetime: My Tunnel to Towers Run)

Posted on August 28, 2013 at 4:49AM by Guest Blogger

Lexington Medical Center will present the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers South Carolina 5K Run & Walk on Friday, September 6, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. in Columbia’s Vista, beginning at Colonial Life Arena. The event honors Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter and father of five who died on September 11, 2001. That day, Siller was off duty and on his way to play golf.  When he heard what was happening at the World Trade Center, he strapped on 60 pounds of gear and ran from the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the World Trade Center. He was last seen with his brothers of Squad 1 saving lives. Tunnel to Towers is a national program that champions our heroes.
