“If Not Me, Then Who…”

 

Shortly after the death of 1st Lt. Travis Manion in Iraq on April 29, 2007, the fallen Marine’s mother, the late Janet Manion, founded the Travis Manion Foundation to assist our nation’s veterans and families of the fallen. Headquartered in Doylestown, PA with another office in San Diego, the Foundation is focused on empowering the nation’s veterans and families of the fallen.

The words Travis spoke before leaving for his second and final deployment to Iraq – “If Not Me, Then Who…” – have inspired a national movement that is growing rapidly. Veterans and families of the fallen are spearheading this movement to build a nation of heroes in which character, leadership and service are in action every day.

The 31Heroes Project

  • Since its inception, 31Heroes has strived to support programmatic non-profits who are making a true impact on returning veterans and surviving families.  31Heroes is proud to be on ongoing athletic and special events partner to the Travis Manion Foundation. To date, we have provided them with $400,000 to support their programs. Here is why we believe in the Travis Manion Foundation…
  • The Travis Manion Foundation engages with veterans and families of the fallen in all stages of their personal journeys and offers them unique opportunities to empower them to achieve their goals. Through the Mentoring and Advocacy Program, Expeditions, the Ambassador Corps, and the 9/11 Heroes Run, veterans and families of the fallen are leading in their communities. They are challenging themselves and others to continue the service to community and country exemplified by the nation’s fallen heroes and veterans. The Travis Manion Foundation believes that the best way to honor the fallen is by challenging the living.
  • Civilian Military Combine has played a crucial role in growing and supporting the efforts of both 31Heroes and the Travis Manion Foundation.  CMC is helping both organizations realize the full potential of engaging and ongoing partnerships with like-minded athletic organizations.
