Come join the Travis Manion Foundation and the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund as we run to honor our Heroes. The 2012 9/11 Heroes Run is bringing communities together throughout the country and around the world this September in honor of September 11, 2001.
Our goal is to NEVER FORGET the sacrifices of all of the Heroes of September 11th and those who have also given it all in the war on terrorism since - veteran, first responder, civilian, and military.
50% of all race proceeds will be going directly back to local race location charities who also strive to remember, honor, and assist the men and women who have sacrificed it all. In Jacksonville, 50%of the proceeds from the Run will benefit the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation. This wonderful organization financially and emotionally supports local families who have a child with cancer.
Run, volunteer, or just come out and cheer! - it promises to be a great time! All we want to do is HONOR THE FALLEN, by CHALLENGING THE LIVING and if you aren't quite sure about participating, just ask yourself, "IF NOT ME, THEN WHO..."

The 9/11 Heroes Run is a programmatic branch of the Travis Manion Foundation. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that directly supports veterans, their families, and families of fallen service members. We do this by providing emergency assistance, scholarships, and other direct financial support when a family or veteran is in need; however, we’ve found the greatest impact and positive change occurs when the military community is challenged to continue to serve. Families who have lost a loved one want nothing more than to honor their fallen heroes memory in a way that exemplifies their sacrifice. Similarly, veterans are looking for a mission and purpose once they leave active service.
The Travis Manion Foundation provides the avenues for this growth and healing through the execution of our three distinct programs: Challenge Grants, Character Does Matter, and the 9/11 Heroes Run.
We "honor the fallen, by challenging the living."
