Feel free to come dressed as your favorite hero or superhero! The 10K/5K Run-Walk will feature cash awards, medals, food and music, as well as stories of triumph and victory from those who have overcome the devastating consequences of domestic violence. Form a team and increase your impact!
Great fun for the kids, too, including a Kids’ Fitness Challenge where each participant receives a pumpkin to decorate. And with Halloween right around the corner, kids can come dressed as their favorite hero or superhero, too! Prizes for best costumes.
