UPDATE: Lookin’ good!
Sunday, September 26th – members of the men’s New York Rugby Club will be joining hundreds of others in retracing the steps in honor of an American hero, Stephen Siller, who lost his life on 9/11 like so many other rescue personnel answering the call to help save lives.
On his day off to go golfing with his brothers, Stephen heard on his scanner that the World Trade Center had been hit, he turned his vehicle around and headed towards the site. When his truck was prohibited from entering the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, typically of him, he raced on foot towards the site with his gear strapped to his back.
He was last seen alive on West and Liberty Streets where he, more than likely, went looking for his Squad, all of whom perished. The Tunnel to Towers Run retraces Stephen’s footsteps on that fateful day.
In running along his path, we honor the memory of all the Firefighters, Police, and EMS workers who performed their duty that day. In running this race, we are reclaiming still another part of the city for all our heroes and for all of those who died on 9/11.
Look for the men of the New York Rugby Club in our Bakline NYRC tee.
