For the third year, Miller Vein is proudly sponsoring the Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk.

The event is hosted annually by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to “honor 9/11 by helping our nation’s first responders and service members, heroes who risk their lives for us every day.” The organization’s namesake is Stephen Siller, a brave and committed New York firefighter who gave his life while saving others on September 11, 2001. The “Tunnel to Towers” name is rooted in Stephen’s dedication to serving others as he raced, on foot in full gear, through the Brooklyn Battery tunnel to the North Tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11. You can read more about Stephen’s story on the foundation’s website.

The 5k run and walk will take place this year on Sunday, September 23 at 8 am at Hurley Field in Berkley.

All proceeds will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, including their Building for America’s Bravest program, which build specially adapted, custom designed smart homes for our nation’s most catastrophically injured service members.
