NAIOP NE Florida Sponsors 9/11 Believe in Heroes Race

Thank you to the patriotic spectators and runners that participated in the Believe in Heroes 8K Run on Sunday September 11th, 2011. The 10th Anniversary of 9/11 was an emotional remembrance for the thousands that lost their lives on the tragic day; and our appreciation for the thousands saved due to the heroic efforts of our firefighters, police, and military personnel, which tirelessly continue to protect our freedom day after day. The race was hosted by the Wounded Warrior Project and attracted over 1,000 runners and participants for this special tribute. Their staff planned and organized a tremendous event and NAIOP was honored to be a Silver Sponsor for the cause….and if you missed it – Governor Rick Scott was a surprise participant in the race!
