The event takes place at Ellington Field and features a 5K run and 1M fun run-walk. Interested participants can register for this event by clicking here. Free commemorative T-shirts will be given to the first 100 participants. The LSC Mobile Go Unit will be on-site and provide refreshments.
“We welcome all participants to join the LSC Heroes Team using the LSCH code,” said Hall.
LSC provides numerous services to its military veteran students including the VetSuccess on Campus program, a collaborative effort between LSC and the Department of Veterans Affairs with the purpose of providing a supportive on-campus environment for student veterans. LSC was also designated a 2015 Military Friendly® School selected from a nationwide list of more than 10,000 schools by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business connecting the military and civilian worlds. This is the second year in row LSC has been recognized.
Race proceeds support the Travis Manion Foundation’s community building projects, programs that inspire future leaders, initiatives that foster camaraderie, and events that support our veterans, service members and their families. A portion of the funds raised through the 9/11 Heroes Run are also invested back into the race communities to support local veterans, first responders, troops and military families.
