FFRF 9/11 HEROES RUN
On Sunday, September 7 at 9am, the Travis Manion Foundation, a non-profit to support the families of fallen soldiers, will be holding their 5th annual 9/11 Heroes Run in Ladera Ranch. For the second consecutive year, Local 3631’s Fallen Firefighter Relief Fund is the community benefactor of the event and will split the proceeds from the race. Last year, we were proud to present the FFRF with a check for $2,000 from the event and this year we are expecting to top that. This event has grown considerably since its’ inception and this year in addition to the 5k and the 1M fun run, we will be holding the CrossFit workout ‘Manion’ for the first time. This is a family-friendly event that features food, fun, games, the United States Marine Corp presentation of colors and the Orange County Sheriff, in addition to our own OCFA apparatus and personnel. Please consider taking the time to support this event to help spread the love to the families of fallen soldiers and firefighters. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Attached are a few pictures from last year. Registration links are below and please use the code ‘CB1’ at checkout for tracking purposes. Thank you for your time.
