Runners show support for first responders & military


Runners laced up their shoes to show their support for area first responders.

Saturday afternoon runners met at the Lee County Courthouse for the second annual 9/11 Heroes Run.

Organizers say the wanted to honor the sacrifices made on September 11th and those who serve in the military. People could run  a 5K or do the one-mile fun run.

"We do this to remember, to remember the attack on 911, remember all the first responders who answered the call to save the lives of those who were injured, and gave their own lives," says Lee County Commissioner Greg Frich.

More than 200 people participated in the run.
