Local museum remembers 9/11 firefighters at weekend event

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Fire Museum of Greater Cincinnati will host a series of events this weekend to promote fire safety and commemorate the anniversary of September 11.

Saturday's event began with a "Ride to Remember" with more than 200 bikers that lined up to participate at the start of the opening ceremony that included a World Trade Center Steel display at the Museum.

The weekend will continue on Sunday, September 8 for the Tunnels to Towers 5K Cincinnati 2013. Runners will run in honor of Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter who sacrificed his life on 9/11.

Proceeds from the run will benefit "Building for America's Bravest" program, which designs Smart homes for military members returning home with life-changing injuries.
