Nearly 300 people were at the first-ever 9/11 Hero Run in Delhi Township Tuesday evening.
Organizers are trying to raise 11,000 dollars, which would go to the Wounded Warriors Project, and the Holt 9/11 Monument.
"We put this event together because we didn't want the community to become complacent with 9/11. Over time it seems as though that takes place on special events," John Bush, race director.
Bush says the Hero 5K will stay true to the 9/11 date. The race will take place on whatever day of the week the 11th falls on every year.
