Denise Weiss of Clarkstown ran the Tunnel to Towers Foundation 5K today honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice 20 years ago.
“Around the 2 mile mark I came around the corner to the Battery Park Esplanade and this is what I saw. For once I’m at a loss for words. #neverforget” posted Weiss on Facebook.
The event traces fallen FDNY firefighter Stephen Siller’s final heroic steps before he died during the September 11 terror attacks. Weiss and participants started at the Hugh Carey Tunnel in Brooklyn and ran or walked to the former site of the original World Trade Center complex.
The route honors the moment Siller abandoned his truck in Brooklyn and ran through the tunnel towards the towers after they were attacked. #neverforget
