Event Description

What is a Tunnel To Towers Run & Walk?
The Tunnel to Towers Run & Walk Series was created to honor the heroic life and death 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. Honor all of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and support our first responders and military who make extraordinary sacrifices in the line of duty! For more information on the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation please visit www.t2t.org

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation has been very active in supporting fallen first responders in the state of TX. One in particular which hits home for the community of Fort Worth: 

While attempting to arrest three serial robbers, Fort Worth Police Officer Garrett Hull of Fort Worth, Texas, was shot and killed on September 14, 2018. During his 17 years in the FWPD, Hull served in specialized tactical units including the Special Response Team, Narcotics Division, and Tactical Intelligence Division. Garrett was a devoted husband, father, son and brother. He was also an avid outdoorsman.   He is survived by wife, Sabrina Hull and two daughters, Jordan and Tristen.
