9/11 National Day of Service & Remembrance – Dallas County Medical Reserve Corps
The 9/11 Heroes Run activates and unites communities to honor the sacrifices of those heroes from September 11th and the wars since, to include veterans, active duty, first responder, and families of the fallen. The 9/11 Heroes Run 5K +1M fun run/walk welcomes runners and walkers of all levels and of all ages, volunteers, friends, and family. Race proceeds are used to directly support the Travis Manion Foundation's mission to empower our nation's veterans and families of our fallen heroes to develop character in future generations in order to strengthen Communities.
Our TIAA volunteers will perform pre-event tasks, such as packet stuffing and any other tasks that the race coordinator needs assistance completing. In addition, volunteers will help assemble emergency response bags relating to emergency preparedness for the Dallas County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC). The MRC provides supplemental support to a variety of local public health initiatives such as school, civic, and faith-based sponsored health fairs, back-up support of immunization clinics and vaccination campaigns, epidemiology staff support during disease outbreaks, and community-wide public health education campaigns. They recruit and train local volunteers to supplement medical response to local disasters and other public health emergencies. The emergency response bags we assemble will be used throughout the year to be handed out to agencies the MRC supports.
