Fritzler Farm Park raises awareness of Tunnel to Towers Foundation
Owner, Fritzler Farm Park
LASALLE, Colo. — Sept. 11, a day of indelible images, heart wrenching to remember and impossible to forget…
This Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of what has become a monumental event in U.S. history. Across our nation, memorial events and observances will be held to honor the victims and remember the legacy of the 9-11 terror attacks.
“On Sept. 11, 2001, off duty FDNY Firefighter Stephen Siller was one of 343 department members who gave their lives while saving others” and for 20 years, Frank Siller, Stephen’s brother, has honored his memory with a beneficial foundation organized to support first responders, veterans and their families with financial hardships. The organization named Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is in honor of Stephen’s journey from the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the collapsing World Trade Center towers.
Since Tower to Tunnels began, “there are 450 mortgage-free homes delivered or in progress and there has been $250 million raised in support of our nation’s greatest heroes and their families.” The foundation not only builds mortgage-free smart homes that address the unique needs of critically injured veterans but also to aids surviving first responder spouses with young children by paying off their mortgages.
This philosophy and a desire to raise awareness led Fritzler Farm Park, a 15 acre corn maze in LaSalle, Colo., to honor the foundation in their 2021 design. Since opening in 2000, patrons of the maze have “got lost” in several patriotic and tributary designs including the Department of Defense logo in 2010, a Crying Eagle in 2013, the larger than Life Everyday Heroes in 2014, Thanks for Your Sacrifice in 2020 and this years’ Tunnel to Towers logo.
Glen Fritzler, owner of the Fritzler Farm Park, is touched by the fact that this foundation has helped so many including Colorado home recipients Brandon Adam, Logan Brokaw, Robert Easley Jr. along with mortgage assistance for the families of Will Lindsay and Eric Tulley.
