About the 9/11 Heroes Run – Charleston
The 9/11 Heroes Run is a nationwide 5K run/walk that honors the nearly 3,000 lives lost on September 11th, 2001, while also honoring the service and sacrifices of our military and first responders. The 9/11 Heroes Run is hosted by the Travis Manion Foundation, a military 501c3 non-profit organization, and takes place in more than 50 locations around the world! The Travis Manion Foundation was founded by the family of fallen Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion, who was killed during his second tour of duty in Iraq in April of 2007. Before leaving for his second and final tour, someone asked Travis why HE had to go…Travis’ response, “If Not Me, Then Who…”
The mission of the Travis Manion Foundation is to assist our nation’s veterans and families of fallen heroes. By inspiring and activating everyone with the generous spirit of those who serve, we hope to instill in them the importance of character, leadership, integrity and leading a life of service. Through mentorship, advocacy, the Character Does Matter program and the 9/11 Heroes Run, we hope to engage and inspire people of all generations to give back to their communities and to continue the legacies of our true American heroes.
Each year, proceeds from our 9/11 Heroes Run – Charleston benefit the Travis Manion Foundation, as well as LOCAL first responder organizations right here at home! Since 2012, we have partnered with 12 different military or first responder agencies in the Charleston area! In those 6 years, we have donated more than $95,000 to our local first responders while at the same time donating an additional $95,000+ back to the Travis Manion Foundation!!! It’s an incredible honor to support our true American heroes and we hope you will help us continue our mission to do so!
Join us on Saturday, September 8th for our 7th annual 9/11 Heroes Run – Charleston, as we honor those lost on 9/11, their families and our brave men and women in uniform. Run, Volunteer, Donate, Cheer…but most of all, HONOR! Let’s gather together under a huge American flag to show our support and appreciation of those that are willing to lay down their lives, for those of complete strangers. Please share our page with your friends and family and help spread the word! With your help, we can make this the best event Charleston has ever seen! Please follow us here on Facebook for more details as they become available. You can also contact us through our email, .
