St. Luke would like to invite you to once again show your support for the Heroes House. For the past 4 years we have hosted our Home for Our Heroes 5k Run/Walk to support our local veterans living there. The money raised has helped with their monthly expenses. These local veterans would very likely remain homeless without the care and support of the Heroes House.
This year (2020) we must overcome yet another hurdle. With the health and safety of our participants and volunteers in mind, we will host our race VIRTUALLY. We want to give you all a chance to continue to support this often overlooked part of our community.
Please join us by signing up to run or walk a 5k anywhere you would like between October 17th and November 7th. We will post all submitted times by November 9th. You can enjoy the beautiful fall weather and use your electronic apps like Zombies Run, MyFitnessPal, MapMyRun, Fitbit or whatever else you like to use to time yourself(optional). You can socially distance and walk or run with as many or as few friends and family as you would like. Wear your favorite patriotic outfit, costume or racing attire and please post on your social media. Also submit pictures to us so we can post them on our Facebook page. Even though we can’t be together we can still work together to end homelessness for our local veterans.
***This year, we are adding a special 1 mile fun run for kids. Just submit their times and they will receive a medal and a t-shirt.
We will not be awarding winning medals this year but we will have t-shirts for all participants that register online BEFORE NOVEMBER 2nd. This will insure that we have all the shirts printed and ready for pick up.
Race packet pickup will be on November 14th at St. Luke Greek Orthodox Church from 9AM-12PM. It will be a contact less drive up delivery. Our address is 134 Talbert Pointe Drive Mooresville, NC 28117.
We thank you again for your support as we remember that we rise by lifting others.
NEW for 2019 and continued for 2020:
Honor or memorialize your loved one or friend who has served our country by having their name, rank and branch of service on the back of our race shirt. Limited to the first 50 names. Something new we are trying to honor our vets while raising money to help local veterans in need.
November 2nd is the deadline for T-shirt guarantee.
Purpose of the race: All proceeds will go towards our local homeless veterans through the Statesville Veterans Heroes House. This center, located at 1208 Wilson Lee Blvd in Statesville, NC is dedicated to feeding, housing and retraining homeless veterans to help them regain control of their lives. This grass roots effort needs funds to help pay for the daily operation of the shelter. Please consider supporting the veterans who have somehow lost their way. Remember, we rise by lifting others.
