An event near and dear to our hearts here at NewsChannel 3 is this weekend.

It's the 5k run, the Travis Manion Foundation 9/11 Heroes Run.

Travis Manion and his best friend Brendon Looney were warriors.

Their friendship forged in the Naval Academy. Manion went on to become a Marine, Looney a Navy SEAL.

Sadly, they were both killed in action. But their bond continues as they lay in rest side by side in Arlington.

This 9/11 event honors their spirit while at the same time it honors all who put on a uniform—military or public service.

The Heroes Run is this weekend at Mount Trashmore. You will see many of us from NewsChannel 3 there.

There's a 5k and a one-mile fun run.

There's still time for you to help support the Travis Manion Foundation.
