Virtual 5k Helps the Surviving Families of 9/11 Victims
A foundation created in the memory of a NYC Firefighter that we lost 9/11 to help the surviving families of 9/11. The fateful day of September 11, 2001, changed forever not only the country and all our lives, but most importantly the lives of all those that we lost in the twin towers. These families that had everything taken from them in minutes, were left with the aftermath of bills and payments that they weren't sure of how to pay now that they were in mourning of their loved one. Bills like mortgages that wives with little children now how to figure out how to pay. But, that is what is so amazing about the firefighting community...these things don't go forgotten and families are never left alone in the aftermath of tragedy.
Stephen Siller, was apart of this community and was near the twin towers when 9/11 happened...his brother knew that he was running to help and later found out that he ran through the New York tunnel towards to twin towers to help and lost in life in the process of his brave actions. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Tower Foundation was established to help the families of those firefighters we lost on 9/11 as well as the families of firefighters, first responders, and veterans that pay the ultimate sacrifice for us. The foundation makes sure that the families are taken care off and don't have to worry about anything like mortgages...they have raised enough funds to pay off many mortgages for the surviving families.
Now they have a Virtual 5k Run/Walk that everyone across America can participate in and even get to virtually tour the firehouse around Ground Zero and around New York. You can get a team together this Tuesday, 9/11 and help bring awareness and help to all the families that will remember that day for the rest of their lives and who are still trying to move on with those they loved the most. The best way to say thank you to all those that gave up their lives to save others, is to take care of those that they most cherished in this world.
