GM Donates to 9-11 Heroes Run: Soldiers & First Responders Honored
USMC 1st Lieutenant Travis Manion never forgot his fallen comrades, and now American runners nationwide are carrying on his memory for the 9-11 Heroes Run, to be held September 11, 2011. The event is a series of marathons across the nation with proceeds going to military families hosted by the Travis Manion Foundation. Named for the USMC 1st Lieutenant killed in action in Iraq in 2007, the foundation’s mission is to assist veterans and military families. The GM Foundation and Chevrolet made a total donation of $250,000.
