Day 1141

9/11 memorial #229

February 13th, 2015

On 9/11, Stephen Siller, an off-duty firefighter, ran through the gridlocked Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel with some 60 pounds of gear on his back to reach ground zero, where he was killed. His namesake foundation organizes many fundraising events, including an annual 5k run through the tunnel to the World Trade Center.
