On Sunday, June 4th, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation will hold its third annual Tower Climb at New York’s One World Observatory. We hope you’ll choose to participate in the event, and support the Foundation’s mission.
The depth of emotion you will feel as you make your way up the steps of the building that symbolizes strength and hope, and the resiliency and invincibility of the American spirit will be beyond words. Looking down at the two reflecting pools that mark the footprints of where the Twin Towers once stood, from the 102nd floor, is a sight to behold.
The event pays special homage to FDNY Captain Billy Burke. On September 11, 2001, while responding to the attacks at the trade center, Captain Burke stayed behind to save others on the 27th floor of the north tower, while commanding other firefighters to get out of the building. He was already aware that the south tower had collapsed. He lost his life moments later. Captain Burke’s selflessness is legendary among those in his profession.
Without support and generosity from citizens throughout the country, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation could not carry out our very important endeavors. The event is limited to 1,000 participants, so please register today to secure a position in this very meaningful event.
