LVMAC Tidbit: 9/11 Heroes Run – Lehigh Valley

July 25, 2019

Each year on or near September 11, local volunteers who have asked themselves “If Not Me, Then Who…” organize 9/11 Heroes Runs on behalf of the Travis Manion Foundation, a nearby local organization and an associate member, in more than 50 cities around the world. The 9/11 Heroes Run unites communities — veteran, first responder,, civilian and military — with the goal to never forget the sacrifices of the heroes of September 11th and the wars since.

For this year, the Lehigh Valley event will be held in the Parkland High School area on 15 September starting at 2 p.m.
