“This year marks the 22nd anniversary of the attacks of September 11th and we have an obligation to remember and to educate our younger generations about the sacrifices of that day,” said Ryan Manion, President, Travis Manion Foundation. “The 9/11 Heroes Run Race Series is our opportunity to gather as a country to honor those we lost that day and in the wars since.”

About Travis Manion Foundation:
Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) unites communities to strengthen America’s national character by empowering veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop and lead future generations. In 2007, 1st Lt Travis Manion (USMC) was killed in Iraq while saving his wounded teammates. Today, Travis’ legacy lives on in the words he spoke before leaving for his final deployment, “If Not Me, Then Who…” Guided by this mantra, veterans continue their service, develop strong relationships with their communities, and thrive in their post-military lives by serving as character role models to youth. As a result, communities prosper and the character of our nation’s heroes lives on in the next generation.
Founded in 1922 by a group of military officers, USAA is among the leading providers of insurance, banking, investment and retirement solutions to more than 13 million members of the U.S. military, veterans who have honorably served and their families.
