Frank Siller is Chairman & CEO of the Stephen Siller Foundation Tunnel To Towers Foundation. T2T started the Climb and also the Tunnel To Towers Race (the last weekend in September) in memory of Frank’s youngest brother, Stephen, who ran in full FDNY gear through the closed Brooklyn Battery Tunnel ‪on 9/11‬. He would make the ultimate sacrifice along with 342 other FDNY’ers.

Also joining me Sunday is Nancy Gass, who lost her husband, Jerry, in a combat operation in Afghanistan close to 5 years ago. Tunnel To Towers gifted Nancy and her two children with a new house, as part of their Gold Star Family Home Program. Tunnel To Towers is the best at getting aid to first responders and their families...faster than any organization I have ever seen. That’s why I am doing the WTC Climb. https://bit.ly/2wwHVQM

June doesn’t just mean summer. It also means the return of ticks and Lyme disease. Lyme disease stole the career and most of the life of ‪Jesse Colin Young‬ of ‪The Youngbloods‬. Now recovered, Jesse (best known for the ’67 hit song “Get Together”) joins me to tells his story.
