Superhero Walk & Run for Children's Mental Health

Fri June 7, 2019 Buffalo, NY 14216 US Directions
Every kid needs a hero, but our kids need a superhero!


Online registration is currently closed so that we can begin preparing for this awesome event.  Registrations are still being accepted in person during packet pickup at St George's Orthodox Church on Thursday and Friday.


Shed your mild-mannered alter ego to make a meaningful impact, improving mental health for kids in Western New York. Your superpowers will lead you through a 5k race or 1.8 mile walk, and a super post-race party fit for a hero! While you're having a blast, you'll be raising critically needed funds to help children get the support they need to overcome the mental health challenges they face each day. 

One in five children live with a mental health diagnosis. But with your superpowers we will break the stigma surrounding mental health, encourage compassionate conversations, and celebrate those who have overcome giant obstacles.

Register today as an individual, or sign up your family, company, civic group, or team of friends. Together you can fundraise to the finish line with every dollar going to fund mentoring and advocacy programs for children with mental health challenges. 

And your superpowers will not go unnoticed! Medals for race winners, prizes for best costumers, and super special superhero treatment for Five-Star Superheroes raising $500 or more.
