On Sept. 9, 2017, the 6th Annual Tunnel to Towers 5K Run/Walk Savannah will honor the legacy of FDNY firefighter Stephen Siller along with his 342 FDNY brothers who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty on Sept. 11, 2001. Public service industry workers, corporate teams and the public are encouraged to register for this patriotic event.
