Tunnel to Towers Run Savannah, presented by Wells Fargo Advisors, recently opened registration for its second annual 5K run/walk, which will feature a special memorial tribute in memory of New York City firefighter Stephen Siller and 342 FDNY brothers who sacrificed their lives on September 11, 2001. Public service industry workers, corporate teams and the public are encouraged to register for this patriotic event.
Tunnel to Towers Run Savannah will also feature The Siller Cup Firefighter
Challenge. Teams of four firefighters or more from across the nation are expected in Savannah to compete in this year’s race. The winning team will take home a traveling trophy and have the opportunity to defend their title in 2014.
