Be a Superhero for kids locally and around the world! Join us in a family-friendly event at Hilliard Davidson High School for Orphan World Relief and Hilliard Davidson Band's 2023 Nationwide Children’s Superhero Run.  This year we’re extending an invitation to all Superheroes.  Come dressed as your favorite superhero and have fun running/walking in one of our races while raising money for a worthy cause. The Hilliard Davidson Band will be there to perform not only before the race but also throughout the course.

Orphan World Relief

At Orphan World Relief, we build strong partnerships with churches, businesses, other nonprofit organizations, and people just like you to help children in crisiskids entering foster carefamilies adopting, and in the future, kids aging out of foster care. Together we can make a difference!

Packet Pickup

We will not be doing an advanced packet pickup for this year’s event. We will communicate details ahead of time via email, so please make sure that you are looking out for any emails that are received from RunSignup. When you arrive at the race (Davidson HS’s Campus) on April 16th, you will be able to get your race bib and t-shirt (as applicable to your event). 


Please note that the lots at Davidson High School are fine to use for parking but for the safety of all participants: once the 5K and 1-mile races begin at 1:00 PM, all lot exits will be "soft" closed until the final participants have cleared any specific path intersection. If any participant or spectator knows that they need to leave before the race is complete (ie, you're only coming for the Kids Run!), we recommend parking across Davidson Rd at Weaver Middle School so that you will not be blocked in.
