Fox Corporation announced on Saturday a $1 million donation to Tunnel to Towers, a non-profit organization supporting injured veterans, first responders, and those impacted by the Sept. 11 attacks.

The announcement followed an interview with Tunnel to Towers founder Frank Siller, who started the organization in honor of his younger brother Stephen Siller, a firefighter killed during 9/11.

“Stephen was the youngest of seven kids, and he was a dynamic human being,” Siller said during an appearance on The Five. “He just finished his night tour in Squad 1 in Brooklyn and he was on his way to play golf with me, my brother Russ, and my brother George. We remember what type of day it was 20 years ago, we were looking forward to that day. And life changed like that. He drove back and got his gear from Squad One, went to the mouth of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and ran through that tunnel, came out the other side and gave up his life.”

Siller completed a 42-day long, 537-mile walk on the 20th anniversary of the attacks, traveling from Washington, D.C. at the Pentagon to Shanksville, PA, and ending by retracing his brother’s footsteps in lower Manhattan.

“To retrace his final heroic footsteps on the 20th anniversary meant everything in the world to me and I couldn’t stop thinking of him for the whole 42 days, but mostly today was very emotional,” he said.
