9/11 Heroes Run - Charleston, SC

The 9/11 Heroes Run is a 5K run/walk in honor of the nearly 3,000 lives lost on September 11th, 2001, while also honoring the service and sacrifices of our military and first responders. The 9/11 Heroes Run is hosted by the Travis Manion Foundation, a military 501c3 non-profit organization, and takes place in more than 50 locations around the world! The Travis Manion Foundation was founded by the family of fallen Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion, who was killed during his second tour of duty in Iraq in April of 2007. Before leaving for his second and final tour, someone asked Travis why HE had to go...Travis' response, "If Not Me, Then Who..."

The mission of the Travis Manion Foundation is to assist our nation's veterans and families of fallen heroes. By inspiring and activating everyone with the generous spirit of those who serve, we hope to instill in them the importance of character, leadership, integrity and leading a life of service. Through mentorship, advocacy, the Character Does Matter program and the 9/11 Heroes Run, we hope to engage and inspire people of all generations to give back to their communities and to continue the legacies of our true American heroes.

Proceeds from each 9/11 Heroes Run benefit the Travis Manion Foundation, as well as LOCAL military and first responder organizations within each community that hosts the event! Since our first 9/11 Heroes Run in 2012, we have partnered with 8 different military and first responder agencies in the Charleston area! In those 4 years, we are very proud to say we have donated almost $50,000 to our local military and first responders while at the same time donating almost $50,000 back to the Travis Manion Foundation!!! It is such an honor to be able to support our true American heroes and we invite you to join us!


Join us for our 5th annual 9/11 Heroes Run - Charleston as we honor those lost on 9/11, their families and our brave men and women in uniform. Let's gather together under the huge American flag to show our support and appreciation of those that risk their lives for ours.
