Greco Promotions, Doylestown, Steps Up as Lead Supplier to Travis Manion Foundation Heroes Run
Greco Promotions, the Doylestown supplier of branded products and screen-printed/embroidered apparel, has become an integral part of the 2021 9/11 Heroes run. It is supplying 1,700 medals and other gear for the October 3 event.
The Travis Manion Foundation organizes the fundraiser, one of several military and law enforcement outreaches it heads nationwide.
The foundation is named for Doylestown resident and U.S. Marine Travis Manion, who was killed in Iraq in a 2007 ambush.
“It’s such an honor to be a part of this effort,” said Fred Greco.
A 9/11 commemorative theme underpins the 2021 edition. The 20th anniversary of the U.S. attacks holds personal resonance for Greco, who happened to be in New York when the World Trade Center was hit.
Greco, who grew up in Feasterville, remembered: “Every day, I would stand in front of the Twin Towers to catch the waterway shuttle up the West Side Highway.” The day of the tragedy, he assisted in the set up of a triage unit at Chelsea Piers while the CIA took over his office.
“Travis Manion Foundation is thrilled to have such a dedicated partner in Greco Promotions,” said Krista Foy, TMF Director of Special Events. “They have been fully committed to helping us build a community of veterans, families of the fallen, and inspired civilians who carry on the legacy of service that our fallen heroes exemplified every day.”
