Sunday - 9/8/2013, 8:04am  ET

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- The fourth annual Heroes Run is scheduled for this weekend in Annapolis.

The 5k and 1-mile runs will take place Sunday.

The run was inspired by Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion, who was killed in Iraq in 2007.

His mother, Janet Manion, founded the Travis Manion Foundation, and the run is one of the foundation's programs to raise money for relatives of service members and first responders who have died.
