The Travis Manion Foundation is sponsoring 5-K runs in 14 states – including six locations in Pennsylvania – as part of its annual 9/11 Heroes Run on September 11 to honor the victims of 9/11 on the 10th anniversary of the attacks.
Five of the six sites in Pennsylvania will be held in the Philadelphia Region – In Fairmount Park, Doylestown, Harleysville, Pottstown and West Chester. A race also will be held in Pittsburgh.
September 2011 will mark the fourth annual 9/11 Heroes Run in Doylestown, Manion’s hometown, where thousands have run to remember. In 2010, six Heroes Runs were put on in various towns across the country including Doylestown, Irvine, CA and Annapolis, MD.
