FDNY members joined the FF Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation at the annual Tunnel to Towers Run on Sept. 29.

The run travels from Brooklyn to Manhattan through the Hugh L. Carey (formerly Brooklyn-Battery) Tunnel. It is the route FF Stephen Siller took on Sept. 11, 2001, when, while off duty, he ran to the site, in full gear, where he was killed. Many firefighters run the route in full bunker gear in his honor.

The run benefits its namesake Foundation, which raises money for Wounded Warriors, among other causes. Learn more at
