Brooklyn, NY - For the sixth straight year, Semper Fi Fund will send over 70 injured service members from Team Semper Fi along with 35 of their family members, to take part in the annual Tunnel to Towers Run in New York City. Semper Fi Fund, a non-profit that provides immediate financial assistance to injured service members, makes it its mission to honor our country’s military heroes by supporting them in their time of need; this week, on Sunday, September 29, the men and women of its competitive athletic program Team Semper Fi will honor the brave Americans who risked and sacrificed their lives on September 11, 2001.
The Tunnel to Towers Run is an annual event organized by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The run memorializes all who perished on 9/11 and follows the footsteps of Stephen Siller, a firefighter who raced on foot from the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the World Trade Center to help in the rescue efforts. Stephen Siller is one of the many firefighters, police officers and first responders who never made it out of the Towers that day—but it’s thanks to them that so many others did.
“The men and women of Team Semper Fi know the meaning of sacrifice first-hand,” said Karen Guenther, CEO of Semper Fi Fund. “We are proud to honor the heroes of 9/11 again this year by retracing Siller’s steps, helping to keep their memory alive.”
Please come out and cheer them along on Sunday! For more race info visit: https://t2trun.org/site/displaySite.do?siteIdCode=BMJ6KQZ1

Dear SFF Supporters,
It’s been twelve years since that crisp September morning in 2001 that reshaped the course of history. Who among us doesn’t still remember where we were at the moment we heard that the Pentagon was attacked and Flight 93 had crashed, how it felt to watch the Twin Towers fall? We lost more than just the lives who perished on 9/11—our sense of security, something we took for granted as Americans, was rocked to the core.
But despite all we lost that day, we never gave up hope — it’s what gave us the strength to come together, rebuild, and show the world Read the rest of this entry »
