EDISON - Thousands of runners made their way through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Sept. 11 Memorial Sunday for the annual Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk.

The event was created to honor Siller, a New York City firefighter who heroically lost his life after strapping on his gear and running through the tunnel to the Twin Towers to help on Sept. 11.

The top fundraising team for this year's event is from New Jersey.

Team Shamrock has raised more than $176,000 in memory of Jersey Shore Sept. 11 victim Donald Roberston Jr.
