Holt 9-11 Hero Run Monday


John C. Bush of Holt and a friend decided a few years back that there needed to be an event in mid-Michigan to honor the heroes who rant towards the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 after terrorists attacked our nation. They were inspired by the story of Stephen Siller, “the firefighter (who) was on his  way to a golf game on Sept. 11th 2001. He received the call to respond to the Twin Towers just as he was approaching the entrance of the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel. When he got to the tunnel, he found it was closed.

Stephen donned the 60 pounds  of gear he had with him and ran to the burning towers. He  made it to the scene, but never made it home. He left his five  young children without a father. The Holt 9-11 Hero Run is not about a single courageous act, it’s about not becoming complacent with the pain and fear that all of us felt on 9-11.”

You can be a part of honoring those heroes like Siller, who answer that call every moment of every day. Maybe you want to run or walk the 5K (3.1 miles). Maybe you want to donate. Maybe you just want to show up and cheer those in the race and immerse yourself in the patriotic spirit that will be in the air. Your presence would be appreciated.

The Holt 9-11 Hero Run starts 6:30 PM Monday, September 11, 2017.

The course will start at Memorial Gardenst, wind through the bays of Delhi Fire Dept., south on Aurelius, through a subdivision, then finish in Holt Plaza at the 9-11 Memorial.
PRICE: $25.00 Race Fee
REGISTRATION: Price increases to $30.00 after September 7, 2017 at 11:59pm EDT

Race proceeds will benefit the National Network Organization for Veterans and the Great Lakes Burn Camp for Kids.
