JOHN FORCE 2011 HONORING OUR HEROES 1/24 ACTION



SEPTEMBER 11, 2011 MARKS THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF AN EVENT THAT FOREVER CHANGED OUR COUNTRY. NEARLY 3,000 PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES ON THAT TRAGIC DAY, BUT THEIR STORIES OF HEROISM LIVE ON FOREVER, INSPIRING ALL AMERICANS TO GREATER ACTS OF COURAGE AND SACRIFICE. STEPHEN SILLER WAS ONE OF THOSE HEROES. A NEW YORK CITY FIREFIGHTER, SILLER RAN THROUGH THE BROOKLYN BATTERY TUNNEL TO THE WORLD TRADE CENTER TOWERS ON SEPT. 11, 2001, CARRYING NEARLY 65 POUNDS OF GEAR ON HIS BACK, TO RESCUE HIS FELLOW NEW YORKERS. WHEN THE TOWERS COLLAPSED, SILLER LOST HIS LIFE – LEAVING HIS WIFE, FIVE CHILDREN AND SIBLINGS TO CARRY ON HIS MEMORY AND SHARE HIS STORY. SINCE THAT DAY, THROUGH THE STEPHEN SILLER TUNNEL TO TOWERS FOUNDATION, HIS HEROISM HAS INSPIRED COUNTLESS AMERICANS. EVERY YEAR, THE STEPHEN SILLER TUNNEL TO TOWERS FOUNDATION HOLDS THE ANNUAL TUNNEL TO TOWERS RUN IN WHICH THOUSANDS RETRACE SILLER’S STEPS ON THAT FATEFUL DAY AND RAISE FUNDS FOR THE FOUNDATION’S CHARITABLE EFFORTS. THIS YEAR, THE STEPHEN SILLER TUNNEL TO TOWERS FOUNDATION IS EXPANDING ITS REACH BY HELPING AMERICA’S MILITARY HEROES. THEY ARE BUILDING CUSTOM HOMES FOR BRENDAN MARROCCO, TODD NICELY AND JOHN BECK – THE ONLY THREE SURVIVING QUADRUPLE AMPUTEES OF THE WARS IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN. WITH OUR PARTNERS AT JOHN FORCE RACING, LIONEL NASCAR COLLECTABLES IS PROUD TO HONOR THE HEROES OF SEPTEMBER 11 AND HELP OUR MILITARY HEROES WHO HAVE SACRIFICED SO MUCH BY DONATING A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS FROM EACH DIE-CAST SOLD TO THE TUNNEL TO TOWERS FOUNDATION.
