Annual fundraiser commemorates anniversary of 9/11

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Sept. 14, 2015 –Cushman& Wakefield Metro Area Capital Markets Group has put together a team to participate in the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers 5K Run and Walk to be held in New York City on Sun., Sept. 27. The race starts at 9:30 a.m. at the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel where participants will follow the heroic footsteps of firefighter Stephen Siller. This is the third year the Cushman & Wakefield team has participated in the race.

The New York event has been held annually to honor the memory of firefighter Siller, who ran through the tunnel with 60 pounds of gear toward the World Trade Center and was killed when the South Tower collapsed on 9/11. The Tunnel to Towers Foundation also supports the nation’s military and first responders who made the ultimate sacrifice. Through the foundation’s Building for America’s Bravest program, specially adapted smart homes are constructed for catastrophically injured service members.

The Cushman & Wakefield team raised over $20,000 in the past two years through   staff and client donations. “We had contributions from over 50 clients, and we’re looking to grow that number this year,” said Kyle Schmidt, director of Capital Markets at Cushman & Wakefield.

Over the years, the fundraiser has grown and evolved into a nationwide and worldwide event. For more information on race locations, registration or fundraising – please visit To support the Cushman & Wakefield team, visit
