DANIEL ISLAND, S.C.–Organizers are gearing up for the sixth annual ‘9/11 Heroes Run’ on Daniel Island. The 5K event is scheduled for Saturday, September 9th.
Race proceeds will be used to directly support the Travis Manion Foundation’s mission to empower our nation’s veterans and families of our fallen heroes to develop character in future generations in order to strengthen communities.
The local beneficiaries of this year’s event are the Berkeley County Rescue Squad and North Charleston Fire Department. This means a portion of the proceeds generated from the event will go toward helping the agencies with its efforts to continue providing its services to the community 24/7 and FREE of charge.
For runners/walkers eager to take part in the event, early-bird registration is now open. Those who sign up will receive a participant t-shirt, free swag bag and four free admission tickets to the Charleston Battery game on September 9th! Registration prices will increase August 1st.
For those looking to start a team, they can easily create one online. They may also run on behalf of one of the local beneficiaries–either the Berkeley County Rescue Squad or NCFD.
