9/11 Heroes Run

September 10, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

The Travis Manion Foundation is gearing up for 9/11 Heroes Runs across the country this September. These events honor and remember the fallen, and the first responders and veterans who were called to action on and after September 11th.

The 9/11 Heroes Run in NYC is September 10 on Randall’s Island at 9am. Whether you are in the military or a first responder, a family member or a friend, or simply someone who wants to give back and thank those who serve in a big way – the 9/11 Heroes Run provides an opportunity to run, volunteer, donate, and cheer but above all – honor.

For more information:

The Travis Manion Foundation was formed in 2008 to honor the life and ethos of Travis Manion, a Marine who was killed in action in Iraq in 2007. His family created the organization to foster his message of “If Not Me, Then Who,” a credo of personal character, service, and community engagement that is at the foundation of the four major programs: Character Does Matter, 9/11 Heroes Run, Operation Legacy Service Weeks, and Veteran Transition Workshops.
