The Tunnel to Towers Tower Climb starts at 8:00 a.m. on June 30th, but events last all day long. All proceeds from the Tunnel to Towers Climb will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
Honoring Stephen Siller
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation was started by the Siller Family after the loss of their brother, Stephen. ANew York City firefighter Stephen lost his life on September 11, 2001. Since its foundation, the goal of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation has been to continue their brother’s legacy. The foundation works to support first responders throughout the country. The Smart Home Program was started as a way to construct specially adapted homes for service members injured on the line of duty. 17 years after Stephen’s death the Tunnel to Towers Foundation honor his memory by holding the annual Tunnel to Towers Tower Climb.
The Tunnel to Towers Climb
A ceremony will be held before the climb up The Westin Peachtree Plaza. The ceremony begins at 8 a.m on June 30th and the climb will last through the morning. Don’t worry if you aren’t a skilled climber, the climb will feature three to five bailout floors along with water stations along the way. All climbers will have a timing chip attached to their shoe so that you can compare your climb times with the rest of the participants. First responders who are coming out for the event are encouraged to wear turnout gear as we honor all who risk their lives every day.
What You’ll Need
All climbers will need to pick up their registration packets the Friday before the climb at the Westin from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The registration packet includes your Tunnel to Towers Tower Climb T-Shirt, along with your bib and start time. All team members will be assigned the same start times so you can make the climb with your friends! Tunnel to Towers recommends arriving 30 minutes before your Climb so you will have plenty of time to check in and start stretching.
