Join in commemorating the fallen heroes of 9/11 by attending the San Diego 9/11 Heroes Run 5K on September 10, 2017. The event will be hosted by the Travis Manion Foundation at 8 a.m., at the USS Midway.
The annual race will unite the community to remember the nearly 3,000 lives lost on 9/11, as well as to honor our veterans, military, and first responders who serve our country and our communities.
Proceeds from the 9/11 Heroes Run will benefit the Travis Manion Foundation, which empowers veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations.
Our special guest at this year’s San Diego 9/11 Heroes Run is Redmond Ramos from The Amazing Race.
The 9/11 Heroes Run 5K series was inspired by Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion, who was killed by a sniper in Iraq in April 2007 as he selflessly protected his battalion. Before his final deployment, Travis visited Rescue One in NYC—famous for losing almost all of their men on 9/11—and returned home with deeper passion about why he was fighting in Iraq.
