Tunnel to Towers Cape Girardeau 5K
This is the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and the 5th year for T2T Cape Girardeau 5K.
Tunnel to Towers Foundation was started by Frank Siller. Frank’s youngest brother, Stephen Siller, was a Fire Fighter in New York. Stephen was off duty when He heard the tones drop about the Twin Towers being hit by a plane. He drove to the Tunnel only to find it gridlock because of all the chaos so He grabbed his bunker gear (anywhere from 60-100 lb) and ran 3.1 miles to the Twin Towers where he gave his life to help others escape the Towers. Stephen Siller along with so many other First Responders lost their lives doing what they loved, Saving others.
The T2T events honor all those brave First Responders who lost their lives on 9/11.
We help give our catastrophically Injured Military Personnel back their independence by building smart homes just for them to help them live a independently as possible and pay off mortgages for Families of Fallen Heroes.
The T2T Cape Girardeau 5K is on October 2 at Cape Girardeau Fire Station 3, 1975 N Sprigg St.
