The 1 mile run at the 9/11 Heroes Run in Philadelphia will be held in memory of a great friend and dedicated partner of TMF, CAPT John Titus, Jr., USN (Ret).  John was a mentor and friend to all and ran this race every year since its inception. An inspiration to fellow Veterans, his Comcast colleagues, friends, family and all of us at Travis Manion Foundation, we are honored to dedicate this run to John.
