New York Stock Exchange published this video item, entitled “Never Forget the Fallen. NYSE Marks September 11” – below is their description.

The New York Stock Exchange welcomes Tunnel to Towers

Foundation in recognition of its mission to assist the families of Fallen First Responders, Gold Star Families, and catastrophically injured veterans. To honor the occasion, Frank Siller, Chairman and CEO,

will rang The Closing Bell®.

Tunnel to Towers Foundation Chairman and CEO Frank Siller shares how the Foundation formed in

loving memory of his little brother, Stephen Siller, a New York City Fire Department (FDNY) firefighter

who gave his life on 9/11.

Frank recalls the morning of September 11th, he and his brothers were getting ready to play a round of

golf. Stephen, a member of FDNY’s Squad 1 in Brooklyn, had just finished a night tour and was on his

way home to meet up with his three brothers.

Frank recalls seeing the first plane strike the North Tower. Stephen heard on his radio and turned his

truck around. He went to his firehouse to grab his gear and headed towards the then Brooklyn Battery

Tunnel. When he arrived, the tunnel was closed for security reasons. Stephen strapped on his gear and

ran through the tunnel to get to the South Tower, where he met up with the members of Squad 1.

Frank remembers receiving the call, when he would learn his brother was among the missing firefighters

from Squad 1, and when it was made clear to him, that Stephen wouldn’t be returning home. He and his

family were overcome with emotion and completely devastated.

A short time later, Frank suggested starting a Foundation to honor what Stephen and others did that

day. His family agreed, and that would be the start of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, named after

what Stephen did that day.

Frank reflects on the start of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation’s 5K Run & Walk NYC and getting the seal

of approval from Mayor Rudy Giuliani to honor the heroes of 9/11 in what has become the Foundation’s

signature event and one of the top 5K events in the U.S., with over 40,000 people participating year

after year.

Since 2,977 people lost their lives on 9/11, many more have died from World Trade Center related

illness and in the War on Terror. The Foundation honors Stephen’s legacy of courage every day it carries

on its mission to “do good” in honor of America’s greatest heroes and their families with young children.
