McLean, Va. (September 25, 2017) – Red Five, a private, McLeanbased security and management consulting company, and its charitable arm, Red Hands Helping, was a recent sponsor of the Travis Manion 9/11 Heroes Run. In addition, the company fielded a team in the 5k race for the fourth year. This was Red Five’s third year as an event sponsor. The race benefits the Travis Manion Foundation, a nationally recognized charitable group supporting veterans and families of fallen soldiers.
The organization was founded in honor of 1st Lt. Travis Manion, U.S. Marine Corps, who was killed in Iraq in 2007. A large portion of the money raised from the 9/11 Heroes Run is invested into local communities to support veterans, first responders, troops, and military families. The remaining proceeds are used to support the Travis Manion Foundation’s community building projects and programs meant to inspire future leaders.
