Description

Be a hero in the eyes of Cunningham kids!

Heroes have made such a big impact that the 5k is now an annual event for us!

Join us on Saturday, September 28, for Cunningham Children’s Home Be a Hero 5K on Cunningham's campus!

This year we've created “The Flash” race for all 5k runners and a “ Hulk” walk for all 5k walkers. You can Be a Hero no matter your skill level. Special awards and recognition will be given to both.

 

Feeling like a Superhero?  
Participants who raise $100 will receive a Cunningham Hero Cape! Wear your official Cunningham Hero Cape on race day or anytime you are being a hero in your community! This 5K Run and Walk will be miles of fun benefitting a great cause.

How does $100 make a difference at Cunningham?

  • $100 in our residential programs cover art, music, and recreation therapy for our kids
  • $100 in our special education programs will help cover the cost of sensory sets for classrooms.
  • $100 in our community services programs will cover the cost of a “startup kit” for youth transitioning into independent living; items include pots, pans, silverware, cleaning supplies, lamps, towels, and other household items that will make their first living space feel like home.

All funds raised through the Be a Hero 5K help to meet the critical needs of the 846 youth, individuals, and families served by Cunningham. Young people are referred to Cunningham for many reasons, including a history of abuse, neglect, trauma, and mental health issues. Many have experienced rejection and loss. Cunningham offers opportunities for healing and hope across our three areas of services – residential treatment, special education, and community-based services. More information about how our programs help youth and families to heal, learn and grow, can be found at cunningham.org

Cunningham Children’s Home is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
