The inaugural Emerald Coast Honor Games, a fitness competition and community atmosphere taking place at Legendary Marine in Destin Nov. 11, invites the community and area business representatives to participate in a 9/11 Moment of Honor at 7 a.m. Sept. 11 to remember the attacks on our nation that took place 16 years ago. The event will take place on Destin Commons’ Patriot Circle at the flag poles. A light breakfast will be provided by Whole Foods.

As the Emerald Coast Honor Games’ mission surrounds raising funds to support defenders of the front line, the group has an innate reverence for those who serve our country and protect our freedom.

Attendants are encouraged to make a $10 donation toward supporting the Emerald Coast Honor Games, which will benefit the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Star Charities, Healing Paws for Warriors, Special Forces Association, and the Combat Control Association.

Those planning to attend are asked to register at bit.ly/ECHG_MomentofHonor.
