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."
