9/11 Heroes Run - USS New Orleans
Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at 8:00 AM (EDT)
We RUN to honor the heroes of 9/11.
We run to HONOR the service of those who’ve served our nation since.
We run to ACTIVATE COMMUNITIES and EMPOWER your local veterans, first responders and survivors.
THE 9/11 HEROES RUN UNITES COMMUNITIES INTERNATIONALLY WITH THE GOAL TO NEVER FORGET THE SACRIFICES OF THE HEROES OF SEPTEMBER 11TH AND IN THE WARS SINCE: VETERAN, FIRST RESPONDER, CIVILIAN, AND MILITARY. JOIN US TO RAISE AWARENESS AND HONOR THE FALLEN.
Large portions of the proceeds raised stay in the host race communities to fund your local first responder, military, and veteran nonprofits who partner with the Travis Manion Foundation - Remaining proceeds support Travis Manion Foundation Challenge Grants, which provide veterans and families of fallen service members by providing camaraderie, transition assistance, grief support, and education through service-based initiatives.
RUN. VOLUNTEER. DONATE. CHEER...but most of all: HONOR
The 9/11 Heroes Run 5K & 1Mile fun run/walk* welcomes runners and walkers of all levels and of all ages. Events take place all over the world, on or near September 11th, and are 100% organized by local community volunteers. It is the perfect opportunity for your community to personally come out and thank your local first responders, military, and veterans in an annual, fun, and family friendly environment!
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."
