On September 24, 2017, the 10th annual Travis Manion Foundation 9/11 Heroes Run took place in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, which is the oldest 9/11 Heroes Run in the world. The 9/11 Heroes Run has become a worldwide event and currently takes place in 51 locations across the United States, as well as internationally. Bachman’s Roofing is proud to support this great cause and be a part of this noble event to remember and honor those who have and are currently serving our country.
The 9/11 Heroes Run series was inspired by Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion (USMC), a Doylestown native who was killed by a sniper in Iraq in April 2007 as he selflessly protected his battalion. Before his final deployment, Travis visited Rescue One in NYC – famous for losing almost all of their men on 9/11 – and came back with a stronger passion about why he was fighting in Iraq. At its heart, the 9/11 Heroes Run is as much of a tribute to Travis’ personal commitment as it is to all of America’s heroes from September 11th and the wars since. Travis’ uncle, Christopher Manion, who is an original founder of the 9/11 Heroes Run, took time to reflect on the character and life of his nephew Travis saying,
Travis was a selfless person, who always made people feel like they were important to him. He lived that way until his final heroic act, and he was a great example of those who serve. We should never forget our brave men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country.This year’s race had a remarkable turnout with over 3,000 participants. Proceeds from the 9/11 Heroes Run will benefit Doylestown Fire Company #1, Central Bucks Regional Police Foundation, the Travis Manion Foundation, and The Colby Umbrell Memorial Fund.
Bachman’s Roofing, Building & Remodeling, Inc. had the great honor and privilege to be on hand for the event. The atmosphere was incredible, and it was inspiring to see all those who turned up to show their appreciation and respect for all of our country’s heroes. Bachman’s would like to extend a tremendous thank you to all who participated in the 2017 9/11 Heroes Run, those who organized the event, and of course to all of the Veterans and Service Personnel who protect our great nation!
