WASHINGTON - The Travis Manion Foundation is hosting a 5K 'Heroes Run' in Alexandria Saturday and in Annapolis on Sunday. Travis Manion was a Marine who was killed by sniper fire in Iraq while protecting his battalion.
He was inspired to serve by those who responded to the terror attacks of 9/11 and visited New York before his deployment.
The 'Heroes Run' is now in its 7th year and has helped raise funds to support local veterans, first responders, troops and military families.
Ryan Manion, president of the Travis Manion Foundation and Travis' sister, joined us with more on the race.
