Description

The 9/11 Heroes Run, a national 5K race series held annually by the Travis Manion Foundation, brings communities together to remember the sacrifices of the heroes of the September 11th attacks and wars since. The 9/11 Heroes Run has spread from a small grassroots event with a few hundred people in one small community in Pennsylvania in 2007 to an event that spans over 50 cities around the world. Last year, more than 30,000 participants joined with their communities to run, volunteer, donate, cheer, but most of all: honor our nation’s heroes. This year, on the weekend before the 14th anniversary of 9/11 there will be more than fifty 9/11 Heroes Runs held in communities across the country and abroad. The 9/11 Heroes Run is one of the only race series that invests funds raised back into the communities that host a race. Through a progressive grant process, the Travis Manion Foundation invested nearly $240,000 last year into community organizations who are assisting military personnel, veterans, first responders and their families locally. The 9/11 Heroes Run Saratoga Springs will be held on Saturday, September 12th at 9am at Congress Park. We hope that you will help ensure that the Saratoga Springs 9/11 Heroes Run brings our community together to remember and honor the heroes of 9/11 and war since. The funds we raise through the race will not only benefit the Travis Manion Foundation, but will also be invested locally to support The Leatherstocking Honor Flight, whose mission is to Fly WWII Veterans to Washington, D.C. so they may explore the memorial.
