The Dana Point 5th Regiment Support Group and the Travis Manion Foundation will be partnering up to co-sponsor a 9/11 Heroes 5K and Fun Run in Sea Terrace Park on Friday, Sept. 11 in honor of veterans, first responders and their families.
Registration and check-in will take place at 4:30 p.m. followed by opening ceremonies at 5:45 p.m. The run will start at 6 p.m.
At 7:15 p.m., after the race, there will be a sunset luminary tribute to the fallen, followed by music and a barbecue.
The event is open to runners and walkers of all levels and all ages in an effort to unite communities internationally with the goal to never forget the sacrifices of civilian, first responders and military heroes of 9/11 and veterans of war.
A portion of the race proceeds will come back to the Marines, Sailors and families of the 5th Marine Regiment and the Wounded Warrior Battalion West at Camp Pendleton.
Online registration will be open until Monday, August 31. To register, visit http://www.travismanion.org/get-involved/911-heroes-run.
