TUNNEL TO THE TOWERS 2019, CROTON WAS THERE, NY NEWSDAY: Race honors those who made 'ultimate sacrifice' on 9/11--For
some dressed in full firefighter gear, the 3.2-mile annual Tunnel to
Towers race was a chance to retrace the steps of Stephen Siller, a New
York City firefighter and former Rockville Centre resident, who ran
through the tunnel on Sept. 11, 2001, to the towers wearing 60 pounds of
equipment. He died that day.
“We’re a little dirty, we’re a
little sweaty, but you gotta support the brothers,” Lt. Dan Bennett, 36,
a volunteer firefighter from Croton-on-Hudson, said after passing the
finish line. Bennett came with about 15 firefighters from Westchester
and New Jersey who wore their gear because that’s what Siller did. MORE
