The 9/11 Heroes Run is a national race series that takes place on or near September 11 of each year. The events enable families, friends and others to honor fallen heroes and support local organizations working to empower veterans.
The Travis Manion Foundation organizes 41 races around the world — now including Madisonville, Ky. — and partners with 47 local organizations. The race provides families and communities a way to honor fallen heroes.
As part of the events, each year TMF gives a large portion of proceeds (up to 50%) back to local groups working with veterans and first responders. By supporting these community organizations, TMF is both helping veterans and their families, and building a coalition of partners.
