Description

Dutch Miller Automotives presents the 3rd Annual Be A Hero! 5K Run & Walk as it returns to the beautiful downtown area of Huntington, West Virginia on Saturday July 11, 2015. The 3rd Annual Be A Hero! 5K Run & Walk is a superhero themed race to honor the greatest heroes this country has to offer; combat wounded military personnel. These men and women have sacrificed so much for this country and it is time that we recognize them and say thank you.

Participants are highly encouraged, but not required, to rediscover their inner kid and to show up to the event dressed as their favorite superhero; whether it be a comic book hero, a real life hero, a historical figure or a person who you consider to be a hero. If you're feeling really creative you can even make up your own hero! The only restriction is to keep it kid friendly!

As a result of the success of the previous two years, the Be A Hero! 5K Run & Walk event has raised a total of $9,141.79 for Wounded Wear in addition to making a $200 contribution to to the Foundation 4 Heroes and a $200 contribution to the Huntington Road Runners. 

It is our goal this year to raise $10,000 for Wounded Wear with this single event (more than doubling what we have already donated) as well as continue to contribute to other non-profits. 

 

The charity that the 4th Annual Be A Hero! 5K Run & Walk will donate 100% of the proceeds to is a non-profit organization called the Combat Wounded Coalition, the Home Wounded Wear.

The Combat Wounded Coalition is proud to have received the GuideStar Exchange Seal for financial transparency with 83% of every dollar goes back to their mission. As a a 501- c3 Non-Profit organization, Combat Wounded Coalition is dedicated to financial transparency. Their Tax Identification Number is 27-0426467

Heroes 4 Highers believe that children and adults enjoy heroes and gain inspiration from them. They want to use this platform to bring the heroes to your event or child's party. Using this experience they want to bring a positive motivational message for the children that may help shape their future. The Hero will bring the message for the children to "Be The Hero" to their community. They will reinforce the message of doing good deeds and doing the right thing in their lives as they grow up so as to make our community a better place. They will teach them to "Turn The Bad Stuff Into Good Stuff". In a community and time with such issues like drugs and bad decision making, this is a needed message to help give the children motivation to overcome the temptations they may face growing up. If they can reach them when they are young we can help make our community a better and safer place one child at a time! This is the message that changes and shapes the communtiy and our future.

The message of........"BE THE HERO"
