The May 20 Event Brings The Community, Combat Veterans And Their Families Together

Registration is now open for the 13th Annual Impact a Hero 5K, one of Impact a Hero’s major fundraising events of the year. This year, the race will be held May 20 at Constellation Field and will feature the traditional 5K Run/Walk/Wheel and Kids 1K.

The 5K registration is $25 for untimed and $35 for timed. The 5K wheel is $25. The Kids 1K is $15. Prices increase on May 13 and again on race day. Cash prizes will be awarded for the Men’s Open, Men’s Master, Women’s Open and Women’s Master categories. Top fundraisers will also be awarded prizes. Every registration will include an Impact a Hero 5K shirt, free fundraising page, and entry to the post-race party.

Historically, more than 50 veterans and their families participate to engage with one another, promote emotional well-being by building camaraderie, as well as receive their much-deserved support from those they serve – our community. The funds raised during this event will provide the resources for the Impact a Hero programs and financial aid given to our heroes.

“This is also a wonderful time for our community to engage with and thank our wounded heroes,” says Laurel Goodroe, business director at Impact A Hero. “The 5k is an emotionally moving event for everyone – for our contributors, our supporters, our team, and most importantly, our veterans.”
