CB Seniors Honored for Heroes Run

Three Central Bucks high school seniors will be recognized at Tuesday's school board meeting for volunteering with the Travis Manion Foundation's 9/11 Heroes Run.

Coordinating thousands of runners, walkers, spectators and volunteers for the annual 9/11 Heroes Run in Doylestown was no small feat.

It was made a little easier, though, with the help of three Central Bucks high school seniors. Those three students will be honored for their volunteer work at Tuesday's school board meeting.

The three seniors, one from each Central Bucks high school, acted as the liasions between their schools' students and the race committee, according to the school district. They are Alex Butler from CB East, Brian Spitzer from CB West and Ryan Kelly from CB South.

They encouraged their fellow athletes and classmates to participate in the run, and also worked on the race committee and volunteered on the day of the race, which was held in Doylestown on Sept. 9, 2012. The Doylestown race was one of nearly 50 races held worldwide, organized in concert with the Travis Manion Foundation.

The 9/11 Heroes Run is a fundraiser; half the proceeds go to the Foundation and the other half to local charities in the communities where the races were held.

The school board meeting starts at 7:30 pm in the board room at 20 Welden Drive, Doylestown. The public is encouraged to attend.
