NEW YORK -- Marines ran the New York City Tunnel to Towers Run, Sept. 30. United States Military Academy at West Point cadets and FDNY firefighters lined the final stretch of the run. The run is in support of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which works to build homes for injured troops and provide scholarships to the children of fallen service members and firefighters. Siller was an off-duty New York City firefighter who headed back to the city to help after the attacks on 9/11. When he reached as far as car traffic would allow he strapped his 65-lbs of gear on ran through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to join his fellow firefighters. The 5km run retraces his steps to the base of the World Trade Center. Siller died while helping with the rescue effort.
