9-11 Hero Run

Fri September 11 2015
Location: Holt, MI US 48842 Directions
Type: Run or Run/Walk

The Holt Michigan 9-11 Hero Run event became reality because  of the "Tunnel to Towers" 5k held in New York. The story behind  “Tunnel to Towers”, is that firefighter Stephen Siller was on his  way to a golf game on Sept. 11th 2001. He received the call to  respond to the Twin Towers just as he was approaching the  entrance of the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel. When he got to the  tunnel he found it was closed. Stephen donned the 60 pounds  of gear he had with him and ran to the burning towers. He  made it to the scene, but never made it home. He left his five  young children without a father. The Holt 9-11 Hero Run is  not about a single courageous act, it's about not becoming  complacent with the pain and fear that all of us felt on 9-11
