Dorchester County firefighter and Summerville resident Dave Moore is planning to walk 100 miles across the Lowcountry in 48 hours to raise money for U.S. veterans, families of fallen heroes and local first responders. According to a news release from the Travis Manion Foundation, Moore will start his trek at 7 a.m. on Sept. 11 at Laurel Hill County Park and will walk/run continuously across the Lowcountry, in full turnout gear, until completing the mileage. Moore’s 100-mile event will coincide with the 9th Annual 9/11 Heroes Run – Charleston, SC. Due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s 9/11 Heroes Run will be virtual, allowing registered participants to run, walk, or ruck a 5K route at their own convenience and choice location. “The (Travis Manion) Foundation is committed to honoring our nation’s fallen heroes and strengthening the character of our nation’s youth,” Moore said.
