Known for their Tunnel to Towers Run attended by 30,000 people annually, the Foundation was created in honor of fallen New York Fire Fighter, Stephen Siller, who dedicated his life to helping those in need. The guiding principle that shapes this monumental event is that every child matters and no childs need is too small to benefit from the grace and power of caring.

We are so excited for the Gala, as its a continuation of the current of goodness that Stephens life and death set into motion, says Frank Siller, brother of Stephen. Our family is particularly grateful to Mayor Giuliani and John Turturro for their support and dedication to this cause.

Stephens legacy functions as the clearest reminder that giving is vital to our communities and especially children. Proceeds from the Gala fundraiser will go to sponsoring educational scholarships for children who have lost one or both parents in the line of duty by providing the Freedom Alliance Scholarship as well as counseling, financial support and other related activities in an effort to bring hope and healing to children who are abandoned, abused and orphaned. The core belief of the Foundation is that every time we change a childs life for the better, we change the future. One child at a time, we can make the world a better place.

About Stephen Siller Stephen Sillers story is both inspiring and compelling. On September 11, 2001, off-duty New York Fire Fighter Stephen Siller a father of five and himself an orphan by age 10 heard what was happening in lower Manhattan. His determination and unyielding dedication to others compelled him to exit his truck when he could no longer drive due to chaos from the attacks, and run on foot with 80 lbs of gear from the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers. He gave his life to save fellow New Yorkers and global citizens that fateful day, and we are inspired by his faithful life mission to always help those in need. Stephen lived his life with a full understanding of the importance of helping people. From his work to his family and friends, he died the way he lived.
