Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk

We are planning to meet at the large Spanish water fountain at Huizenga Park.  Let’s all try to wear Cornell attire!

This year marks the 14th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.  The Cornell Club of Fort Lauderdale and Boca is participating in the Tunnel to Towers 5K in Fort Lauderdale, FL on September 13th, 2015 to honor those who died in the attacks.  On that day, we lost 20 Cornellians who, during their time at Cornell, served as a captain of the football team, an All-American lacrosse player, a fraternity president, a member of the equestrian team and more. All walked along the same paths we did, all dealt with the brutal Ithaca winters, all were beloved Cornellians.

EVERYONE IS ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND- Cornell alumni, significant others, friends, family (both young and old), runners, run/walkers, walkers

We have created a fundraising team, named “Cornell Club” in order to raise money for the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to honor the memory of their brother, Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter (FDNY) who lost his life on September 11, 2001.

·         All proceeds will go towards the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The goal of the Foundation is to continue Stephen’s legacy by supporting our nation’s first responders and service members. Building for America’s Bravest, a program of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, constructs specially adapted smart homes for our most catastrophically injured service members.
