Mobile, AL is one of dozens of cities across the country to host the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Run. Since 2002, the event is held annually to honor the 343 firefighters and first responders who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.
The event also remembers the men and women in the Armed Forces who died while fighting the War on Terror.
The Tunnel to Towers Run recreates the final footsteps of New York City Firefighter Stephen Siller, who was last seen running through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel with sixty pounds of gear strapped to his back on his way to the World Trade Center.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Stephen Siller Foundation, which supports special needs by first responders, burn centers, orphan support and severely wounded veterans.
