9/11 Heroes Run

ELGIN - In cities all across the world, runners, ruckers, and walkers are warming up for 9/11 Heroes Runs and, this year, Elgin won't be left behind.

Every year, either on or around Sept. 11, volunteers rally together to participate in the race to support the Travis Manion Foundation and honor fallen service members, law enforcement and first responders.

In memory of 1st Lt. Travis Manion who was killed by a sniper in Iraq on April 29, 2007, while assisting his wounded teammates, the TMF carries on his legacy by linking veterans together with community events and mentorship programs.
