Honor the Heroes of 9/11 During an Inspiring 5K Event

The 9/11 Heroes Run/Walk/Ruck activates and unites communities to honor the sacrifices of those heroes from September 11th and the wars since, to include veterans, active duty, first responder, and families of the fallen. The 9/11 Heroes Run 5K +1Mi fun run/walk welcomes runners, ruckers, and walkers of all levels and of all ages, volunteers, friends, and family. It is not about fitness level or experience but about activating, uniting, and honoring heroes.

Started in 2007 by family of fallen 1st Lt. Travis Manion, as a grassroots run in his hometown Doylestown, PA with 300 runners, the 9/11 Heroes Run now has more than 70 race locations around the world, presence in 38 different states across the country, and unites more than 60,000 people yearly to celebrate heroes and spread awareness.

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 veterans, their families, and first responders in an annual, fun, and family-friendly environment!

Race proceeds are used to directly support Travis Manion Foundation's mission to empower the nation's veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations in order to strengthen communities.

At The Retreat at 2818 Apartments in Bryan, Texas, we love mixing up on-site events with those happening in our greater area. Be sure to pencil this one into your busy schedule!
