Calling all runners for a worthy cause.

The Travis Manion Foundation will host the Philadelphia 9/11 Heroes 5k race at the Philadelphia Navy Yard on September 9, 2017.

The 9/11 Heroes Run activates and unites communities to honor the sacrifices of those heroes from September 11th and the wars since, to include veterans, active duty, first responders, and families of the fallen. The 9/11 Heroes Run 5K +1M fun run/walk welcomes runners 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 our heroes. 

This years race is organized by Faye Hellman who serves as the local volunteer race director. The race will start at 9 am and will be preceded by a 9/11 memorial ceremony.

The speakers at this year’s race are Travis Manion Foundation’s President Ryan Manion, Philadelphia Police Department Deputy Commissioner Joe Sullivan, and Army Veteran and Philadelphia City Councilman David Oh.

The event will include several static displays from local military units, the Philadelphia Fire Department, and the Philadelphia Police Department.

All proceeds from the Philadelphia 9/11 Heroes Run will benefit the Travis Manion Foundation.
