Get ready to get up, stretch, run/walk/jog the Heroic Hearts 5K!

Run through the beautiful prairie of the Danada-Herrick Lake Regional Trail. Enjoy a pre-race stretch, get pumped up with some hard hitting beats, and off you go! 


In war-ravaged countries, everyday thousands more children are left to face starvation, homelessness, disruption of schooling and must live under constant threat of attack without the support of one or both parents. HHO is committed to bringing lasting and positive change to young lives that will translate into a brighter future for generations to come. A donation of just $600 can provide an orphaned child and his/her guardian with food, water, clothing and medical care for an entire year! We have 100’s of orphans standing by who are in need of our immediate assistance! We challenge each runner to fundraise enough to sponsor as many needy children as possible!
