Description

Join us for our inaugural Be A Hero 5K presented by High Country Beverage. This family-friendly event has been designed for serious runners (with a challenging, shaded trail run), little runners (Mini Heroes Dash inside our office park) and every type of runner in between. We invite you to sponsor, run or walk, volunteer or to enjoy the festivities on a beautiful summer morning. Please dress the part by running as your favorite hero: super or every day.

100% of the proceeds raised will provide direct care to our clients.

The 5K starts in Rolland Moore Park - the finish line is in the Spring Creek Medical Park in front of the ChildSafe Building. The Mini Heroes Dash start/finish is in the Spring Creek Medical Park in front of the ChildSafe Building.

Have a great run for a great cause!
