BLT 2017

The BLT walkers – 2016

The team will run/walk again this year.

To donate go to The BLT

The Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk Series was created to retrace the final steps of Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter (FDNY) who lost his life on September 11, 2001 after strapping on his gear and running through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers.
The run and walk event pays homage to all first responders who made, and continue to make, extraordinary sacrifices in the line of duty.

Proceeds from the event support the Foundation’s programs, including those benefitting first responders, and catastrophically injured service members.

The Tunnel to Towers run is an annual event in New York and for several years my cousin Jen has participated. Last year she and my sister Liz created the BLT  – the Babs and Larry Team in honor of my father, a New York City firefighter. He would have been 100 years old on April 6, 2016.
