Several hundred runners are paying tribute to the fallen of 9-11 and those who serve our country and community today in the 13th Annual Patriot's Run. Held at various venues across Olathe, this year organizers chose the Olathe campus of MNU.
Beginning at noon, the event spans 9 hours and 11 minutes. The family of Randy Drake, who died from his injuries outside the Twin Towers, has a team running and walking the entire 9 hours and 11 minutes. Other area families who lost loved ones in the events of 9-11 are also represented.
Marathon runners, 5K runners and walkers of all skill level are joining in, including a team of professors from the MNU School of Business.
